I was born in Athlone,County Westmeath,Ireland
I gained a degree in fine art at Brighton Polytechnic in 1994.
I entered works in various exhibitions in England before emigrating to Australia in 1996.
In March 2012 I was an artist in residence for the Lewin: Wild Art exhibition at the State Library of New sith Wales. I have also been an artist in residence at Sails of the desert hotel Ayres Rock
I have exhibited at exhibitions around Sydney, most notably Botanica at the Royal Botanic Gardens. I began to paint birds in 2007 with a view to representing Australia’s most iconic birds.
I am also a heraldic artist, painting coats of arms and other insignia. My recent commissions include two 1910 Rolls Royce cars and a
yacht. My most notable commission was to paint eight coats of arms and
five insignia onto the Diamond jubilee state coach presented to Her Majesty the Queen.
I like to incorporate three bees into my paintings, an old heraldic symbol representing industriousness. I also hide a small map of Australia in I paintings.
