ABOUT ME

I have always had a keen interest in art and find it a great way of channelling my creativity.

 

Having been born and raised in County Fermanagh, Northern Ireland, my love of the countryside led me to begin painting landscapes which was my starting point and has led to everything I've done since.

 

I have been a mural artist for several years now and recently I have been combining my love of music and art to produce portraits of my musical heroes. I also find time to paint sometimes creepy, sometimes cute illustrations for the sheer joy of it.

 

When I'm not painting, I can be found on stage singing with my punk band Setting Off Sirens and on special occasions I am even known to don the make-up for horror punks, Cadaver Club.

 

I derive as much satisfaction from songwriting as I do from my art. Other interests include writing short stories and humerous poems which are usually inspired by my love of Halloween and the darker elements of life.
