MY STORY

MY JOURNEY WITH ART STARTED WHEN I WAS JUST A TEENAGER, THE DAY I DISCOVERED THE ASTRONOMER THE LATE CARL SAGAN,HIS ENTHUSIASM AND THE AMAZING IMAGES OF THE PLANETS WHERE BREATH TAKING,THAT WAS THE DAY I PICKED UP A BRUSH AND MY  JOUNEY WITH ART BEGAN.

ART COLLAGE  WAS THE OBVIOUS ROUTE FOR ME AND FROM THERE I STARTED WORKING AS A GRAPHIC DESIGNER. A FEW YEARS LATER I WAS OFFERED A POSITION IN IRELAND TO WORK FOR DISNEY AS A DESIGNER FOR ANIMATION, I MADE MANY FRIENDS THERE ...IT WAS A WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE WHICH I WILL TREASURE.

 

THROUGHOUT MY THIRTY FIVE YEARS HAS AN ARTIST I HAVE HAD WORK COMMISSIONED FROM CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY FOR THE THEORETICAL PHYSICIST THE LATE STEPHEN HAWKINS BOOK "THE EXTREME UNIVERSE" I WAS ALSO COMMISSIONED FOR THE BOOK COVER "COSMIC CONNECTIONS"  FOR MY HERO CARL SAGEN.I HAVE ALSO WORKED ON ALBUM COVERS AND MURALS AND I HAVE HAD MY WORK EXHIBITED IN LONDON AND EDINBURGH.

 

 BESPOKE PORTRAITS OF ANIMALS AND PEOPLE ARE MY LATEST PROJECTS BUT MY PASSION FOR SURREAL ART REMAINS AS STRONG AS EVER  AND I AM ALWAYS INTERESTED IN NEW IDEAS TO EXPERIMENT WITH AND TO GO ANYWHERE IN THE MINDS EYE,OPENING NEW DOORS TO THE VISUAL IMAGINATION.

MY ART TECHNICS INVOLVE USING  AN AIRBRUSH , I LIKE TO WORK WITH ACRYLIC INKS ,ACRYLIC PAINT S  & CRAYONS  BUT  I AM ALWAYS LOOKING FOR WAYS TO EXPERIMENT WITH NEW IDEAS.

 I BELIEVE THAT ART IS AN EXPRESSION OF OURSELVES AND THE BEAUTY OF A PIECE OF ART IS IN THE EYES OF THE SPECTATOR....WE ALL SEE & INTERPRET IMAGES DIFFERENTLY...NOTHING MORE THAN ART CAN EVOKE EMOTIONS...WHICH I THINK IS AMAZING.
