Described as a radical Turner, I am a multiple award winning artist living in Folkestone, Kent. I am well known for my vibrant, expressive, abstract paintings. More recently I have drawn significant attention for my growing collection of colour burst paintings where I attempt to balance both materialism and spiritualism through lyrical abstraction. Fascinated by the world around me, I aim to lay out my emotional responses on canvas and better understand the human condition to which I am bound.

Born in 1976 in Dublin Ireland I discovered my love of art at a young age. Following my natural artistic instinct, I acquired techniques and preferences which I relate directly through my work. I aim to deconstruct cultural traditions and beliefs using various mediums to solidify my statement and personal views. As I start on a new painting, I begin on a journey through a host of emotions which are expressed through colour and form to offer the viewer a direct visual connection with my mind set.
