Paintings

My paintings are inspired by the landscapes I encounter when out walking across Northern Ireland.  The mesmerizing beauty of my homeland to me, is hard to resist and it is this that I want to capture in my paintings. I am attracted to the drama of light v’s dark as I believe one is enhanced by the other. My eye is struck by the way light either shapes, fades, amplifies or brings this world to life. I aim to create colourful dramatic landscapes that refer to the positive influences of nature. My workstyle is best known for its multiple layering of colours, with some works having up to 10 layers to achieve the effect that I want. I always find it exciting to ensure a sense of atmosphere reflecting the powerful force of nature. When light is added to the last layer of beauty, my paintings are born.
