Biography

 Overview

To date my career has been focused on my studio practice and providing practical workshops, and education in Art in the community and in non-classroom environments.

I returned home to County Louth in May 2005 after 13 years in Dublin and built a house and studio / workshop in Ardee Co. Louth.

I teach art classes in Louth for adults and children.
