My ink & wax (and more recently digital) pieces draw both from nature and the world around me, and
from an inner world of the imagination, language, the past and the
unconscious. What interests me is how those different realms jostle
up against each other, sometimes feeding, sometimes
challenging one another.
Monotype prints represent a very different side of my work: more straightforward observations of nature, predominantly of birds and other animals, they only slightly overlap with my ink paintings in their subject matter and free, gestural technique.
Monotype prints will be on show at summer exhibitions 2019 of the Graphic Studio Gallery, Dublin, the Kenny Gallery, Galway, and at the Greenacres Gallery, Wexford
