"Things are beautiful if you love them"

I found I could say things with colour and shapes that I couldn't say any other way - things I had no words for.

I am developing my presence in galleries and I am currently showing in the following spaces:

I am based in Belfast, Northern Ireland.  I wouldn't be anywhere else.  This is where I am from, where my family and friends are.  Northern Ireland has a difficult history and the potential for a better future.


I paint from whats around me, my memories and my hope for the future.  I think Belfast gives the same inspiration, committment, humour, guts, faith, regret and shame as many of the art power houses of the world.  I dont think any other place on earth can claim to be more complicated or special.  You should visit for yourself and see what I am referring too.  


Where you live and what you live through makes you who you are.  Our experiences are only true to us and nobody knows how you feel.  


I think all artists think too much.  Its important that this makes its way on to the canvas.  I dont try to reproduce images or memories, I try to decipher them and try to make sense so that I grow.


I hope you like the work, I will update as much as possible.  Thanks for looking in.
