Fresh paint from the Tyrone Guthrie Centre
























This layering of spaces 
this thinking in colour 
these lines of thought

Where it never ends
or it never begins 
it is always there
a hum 

A simple putting together of things
of colours 
with tension

Dark is the deep sea

A new solo show in Dublin









After lots of hard work and hibernation I’m very happy and VERY excited to finally announce my new solo show ‘TONIGHT THERE IS NO GOD’. 
I call this my schizophrenic one, it swings in emotion from serenity to defiant anger with I hope some humour thrown in, and I can’t wait to see all the work together on the walls of the fabulous ORIGIN GALLERY, Dublin come June 14th! 
To be opened by MARIA DOYLE KENNEDY, Roll up, roll up, put the date in your diary, and polish your shoes, tell your sisters and brothers and mothers and fathers, your nuns and your priests -
Don’t miss this one!
More info soon ….

“LADIES, Acrylic, spray paint and pencil on canvas, 120cm by 90cm

The horse that found its way home
















This painting 'Social Achievement' now owned by the Office of Public Works was used as a print for this fabulous dress by fashion designer Julianna Bass. It went down the runway at New York Fashion Week, and now it has now made it home and into my own wardrobe....What an extremely special gift (www.juliannabass.com)

London baby - to see a few things.....







A runner on the embankment


Blown away by the David Hockney show


 And the ever changing London skyline

"I confess I find such a place not lonely or depressing but inspiriting. You are thrown at the same time back upon yourself and forward against the mystery and majesty of nature and you may feel dimly something of your own littleness and your own greatness."
Robert Llyod Praeger 




Happy Christmas to all

Cill Rialaig Project



































Very glad and full of joy to be going back to this magic place for a residency in the next few days 

You have to slowly let go 
of all that you've clung to tightly to survive 
because here you need something else to survive
you need to sit with the very stuff you're made of 
rediscover solitude 
and the silence
oh the silence
and the sea.
