About

I am an Irish artist based in Leicester, UK. My work draws influence from city architecture, landscape and people and I use a variety of media including ink, watercolour, charcoal, pastel, lithography and etching.

I am attempting to capture moments in time but also acknowledging the intricate web of a city’s or landscape’s history which is influenced by the architecture, passing people, passing time and its environment.

I am a member of the Leicester Society of Artists, Leicester Sketch Club, Leicester Print Workshop and Urban Sketchers Leicester group and have work on show in the Cank Street Gallery.
