''Straight lines and circles are...not only beautiful...but eternally and absolutely beautiful''. Plato
Welcome to my website. I have always been intrigued by the interplay between the unknown, mystical world and the physical, tangible world. This interplay was once deeply rooted in pagan Celtic Ireland. This dichotomy, yet sameness, is a response to how I view the world as an artist, like an archaeological dance between mystery and revelation, and is fully encapsulated in my creative works. The stillness and silence of the ethereal world is mystified in soft, light and dark painterly layers and through the use of the circle. The structured, tangible, physical world reveals itself as heavily textured surfaces, materials, marks and strong compositional elements, anchoring my work in the here and now. Style and realm are not mutually exclusive to one another, whereby, according to Celtic belief, spirit is matter and matter is spirit.
