The colours, patterns and textures in landscapes are the starting points for much of my artwork. From these beginnings the resulting images may develop in unpredictable ways. Some images evolve from memories of a familiar landscape; other work is founded on the more immediate landscapes of the coastal areas of North County Dublin where I live. The West of Ireland also features in my work. My sketchbooks, including experimental work, and photographs of many landscapes visited, provide ongoing references and sources of inspiration.
