about the artist

Artists Achievements..

Although I am based in Belfast I have been in countries around the globe for a variety of reasons such as: A four month arts’ residency in Calcutta (Kolkata) India, as a student in Uppsala, Sweden, I exhibited in New York, I found ‘brothers in art’ in the Aboriginal community, Australia and created site specific installation in Valencia, Spain and have worked in schools and community centres across the Basque Country with the International Gathering of Artsits for Peace.  These and other parts of the world have all provided great experiences and brilliant opportunities to learn.

I have exhibited widely in Ireland and in a number of international venues.  For details of past events and exhibitions please have a look at my CV section. 

Keep checking back on the site or join my mailing list to keep informed of current work.
