At the moment i am exhibiting my work in Galway and in Leitrim. I have received great feedback from my work and this encourages my to explore to a greater dept. My work is based on the Landscape we see before us. One can take this as a metaphor for everyday life,memories,emotions and sensations that may fall upon us at an time. My " Landscapes" are based on my memories, my emotions and the way i precieve life. My work has taken an oriental turn as i regard the way Japanese Artists percieve the world around them.
