My portfolio is my story

Northern Irish born, I have been painting since a young age. It started in my Grandmother's Art studio , on and off over the years , and most recently decades later, I have been back at it endlessly, hours upon hours. I have always had a passion for capturing core emotion and transposing imagery on my canvas at hand. Whether I am painting or shooting photography or blending the two for magical results, this is when I am most content, when my inner expression is brought to life.
