"My work exhibits a strong emotional affinity with the Irish landscape. The variety of the Iveragh landscape is seen in my work – sea, lake, river and also mountain, forest and rolling bog. My relationship with my subjects grew out of many childhood summers spent in the small village of Portmagee, nestling between the Kerry mountains and Valentia Island. My development as an artist was a slow evolutionary process which strengthened the emotional ties between the subject and artist, paving the way for a dramatic shift away from the representation of actuality and a move towards the subjective.
I believe that my paintings impressionistically create the essence of the landscapes I depict. I use colour and light and form imaginatively to reflect what I see in nature but also I interpret the scene. I use the lines and flow of the subject to emphasise shapes and pattern. I create an almost textured effect to surfaces to suggest a tactile appeal.
Some paintings have the strength and excitement of rich glowing jewel colours. Others are delicate, tranquil, mysterious and calming, to give an almost dream-like experience. The colours become lucid, drenched in a vibrancy that extends far beyond the usual palette of greens, greys and browns.
In my use of flowing forms, light and colour I wish to share and to achieve a heightened sensitivity of the senses. I also wish to suggest and communicate the mood and emotion as the scenes flow. I hope that the creative amalgamation of experienced craft and vibrant colours redirects ones notion of the masculine towards the feminine."
