Bio:

I am a painter and occassional writer and contributor to art publications. I studied painting at the National College of Art and Design in Dublin.
My work mainly comprises small-scale paintings and assemblage (with an eye to the early 20th century).I am interested in the ideas and theories which abstraction generates and I try to move freely within a vocabulary of loosely connected but often familiar 'abstract' motifs which have long since shed their original baggage of social, political or formal associations. The devices I use are taken from many sources ranging from the highly personal to the found object or a lost moment recorded on a scrap of paper.
