My foundation diploma allowed me to experiment with a wide range of subjects and Art medium, and it wasn’t long until I discovered I loved painting. I graduated as a teacher of Technology and Art in 2002 and have taught Art and design now for 16 years at Dunluce School. However it wasn’t until my son was born that I began to absorb myself back into what I love best…..painting.
I have been selling my work since I left Art college and have had many commissions over the years. I use a range of medium from oil, acrylic, watercolour, charcoal, pastel and pencil. However most of my work is mainly oil. The rural life of the North Coast of Ireland and it’s magnificent scenery has been an inspiration to me and forms the basis of most of my landscape paintings.
I also specialise in detailed portrait painting, figure painting and pet painting. Whatever the subject, it is important to me that my work is characterised by perfect colour, light and photogenic likeness. I am a people’s painter and I like to evoke memories that most of us can relate to. Whether its a day out at the beach, a special person or place, I will paint whatever people love.
As well as selling originals, I also sell prints. Prints are available with Bible verses on them.
I want to honour God through my painting and I feel I can do this by adding the word of God to my work. I can say with Psalmist, O how I love thy law! It is my meditation all the day….How sweet are thy words unto my taste! yea, sweeter than honey to my mouth!…Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path….Your laws are my treasure; they are my hearts delight. Psalm 119.
For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth. Romans 1 v 16.
I love God and my relationship with Him means more to me than words can say. He is my everything.
The Lord is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer, The God of my rock; in him will I trust: he is my shield, and the horn of my salvation, my high tower, and my refuge, my saviour. 2 Samuel 22 v 2-3.
If there is a particular verse in the bible that you like, it can be added easily and simply. Just get in touch.
