I am a painter working from a studio in Cork City, Ireland. My work over the last twenty years or so has varied from paintings of figurative, urban and landscape subjects, sometimes referencing the history of painting. My most recent work tends to focus on the creation of a structured space, while investigating the boundaries between abstraction and representation. These paintings are focused around spatial constructs and how they might provide a structured space for our environment. They reference our associations to land and our search and desire to find a place within it.
