ABOUT THE ARTIST
I was born on the Emerald Isle of Ireland, county Dublin in 1978. From a young age I was captivated by the ancient meadows of crumbling castle ruins and the clear as crystal night sky's seared me with a creative wonder.
Inspired by this land of mystery I began to draw, reflect on my scribbles and draw some more. Over much time and perseverance I began to realized my sketchbooks were a place of creative freedom allowing me to dive deeper into self discovery.
C A R E E R
I continued my studies in Dublin, majoring in animation and CG modeling at Ballyfermot Senior College.
I have worked in the entertainment industry for the past 15 years as a conceptual artist and art director, specializing in character, creature and world creation for clients including Codemasters, Electronic Arts, Riot Games and Emberlab.Currently I reside in Los Angeles, California as a Fine Art Painter and Art Director.
I create art to express and kindle inner knowings that reside within us all, the glimmering fires of our own personal truth.
My personal work is inspired by an appreciation and gratitude for the gift of Life we breathe together, and to imaginings of harmonious worlds yet untold...

For Fine Art collections I use archival materials to prepare, paint and seal each work.For prints editions I mount, varnish and seal each series to an archival wood panel, protecting each piece from environmental conditions.
