Irish Oil Paintings

Ireland is one of most scenic countries in Europe, I would say that, I am Irish!
Ireland is a vibrant landscape of sea and mountains carved out by the elements over millions of years, constantly changing depending on the light and the weather.
Ireland is my canvas and I want to share it with you.

I started painting in 2014.
When I first started I wanted to combine my photography with oil painting.
At first I did a lot of post Monet which really helped  with my understanding colour and how to use it.
I have sold over sixty paintings to date and it is a great feeling when someone wants my art for their home.

Contact me at my my studio in Killiney or via email to discuss commissions if you don’t see something you like on my site.
