Painting Mixed Media Oil, Acrylic, Pastel
"I have been teaching Design and Visual Communication for over 12 years and am lucky enough to draw and paint every day.
In my work, I like to explore a range of visual ideas that I have generated from personal nostalgia. Subjects in my work are drawn mainly from my past; memories, people, musicians and objects from my life. I am interested in the way that the manipulation of scale and colour can catapult these items into striking importance or cultural significance. I use a range of materials and techniques, which refer to Graphic Art and the era of Pop. Give me anything that makes a mark; inks, marker pens, rattle cans, acrylic, and airbrushing are some of my favourites.
My other passion is music and I am always looking for opportunities to combine my music and art. I Recently I have completed commissions for Born on the Road Records, Peckings’ Records of London and Dublin’s Dirty Dubsters. "
