Welcome! Throughout my time working as a painter I have been lucky enough to meet some lovely people from all around the country and further afield, many of whom have become firm friends. Something that seems to unite all of them, and me, is an appreciation and love of West Cork. For some, it is a lifetime home, for others a sanctuary, but we have all been touched by the wild beauty of it's landscape, the depth and prevalence of it's history and the warmth of those who call it their own. For myself, West Cork and those places that share the same magic - Cahirsiveen, the Skelligs and all along the Wild Atlantic Way, have offered up 20 years of inspiration. In that vein, I have decided to archive this landscape through a visual diary in a hope that this collection will make sense of my own work and celebrate the beauty of its subject matter.
