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.

Finishing River Medway Sketches back in the studio in Ireland.
The coastline line of Waterford has some beautiful rock formations. This spot is a great example and a great place to sketch
