A picture is worth a thousand words so I
am going to use very few words. Let the pictures speak for themselves.
When I write I see everything in pictures; the words then follow. In
art I have been captured and inspired by Miro, de Kooning, Pollock,
Calder, Picasso, Chagall, Rothko, Stella, Kandinsky, Matisse - abstract
expressionism, modernism, and post-modernism.
Connemara, my home, is the western part of County Galway on Ireland's
Atlantic coast. It is a beautiful, peaceful, magical place far from the
hustle and bustle of modern city life. Here you will find wide open
spaces (bogs), sparkling lakes (loughs), towering hills (the Twelve
Bens and the Maamturks) and white sandy beaches. It is impossible to
capture Connemara on film or on canvas. Yet I try from time to time.
The photographs here are those that survived my critical eye. And yet
they still fall short of capturing Connemara. You must visit yourself
and see this land through your own eyes."
