I am a Landscape Painter/Printmaker living in Waterford and Wexford. I would describe myself as a ‘Serial Sketcher. By this, I mean that I regularly go out into the landscape in all weather conditions making numerous expressive sketches using a wide range of materials.

For me, sketching is the foundation of my work. Sketching allows me to record fleeting moments, capturing areas of dense foliage, mysterious pockets of space, light breaking through a tree, the soil, mud, rock formations, vegetation, the smell of the salt air, wind upon your face, sometimes even the remains of a dead animal.

Visited here in summer of 2021. As soon as I set up the rain started but managed to get some sketches done. I'm always attracted to water.
One of the hottest days to date, a spot I've sketched at many times, always looks different. I think the grass studies turned out well.
Always wanted to visit these woods, near Gorey. So I made time for a short trip. I will certainly be back!
