Welcome to a view through a window to my Art and Word-Play. Born in Ireland and regard the World as my home and therefore I am constantly seeking to discover myself through my art, to mold my own identity as a human being and to find a meaning in the Universe as to why I am here ... I create to feel alive and live in the certainty of the uncertainty happening in my Art/Life.

Smithwicks Hall of Fame Trophy
20cm Long x 14cm x 15cm High
Private Collection - Ireland, England, Europe, Australia, New Zealand,
Two bronzes were cast each year from 1987 to 2005 and presented to people of note in the field [ excuse my 'pun' ] of Rugby. I received the commission to make a bronze sculpture in ' Rugby Play '. THE TACKLE is the result of my observations of the game , a sculpture that depicts the game in all it's glory to the people who follow the sport with passion .
In '87 I was under the impression that it would be a ' one off ' commission but it rolled on for another eighteen years . It brought my name and work to different parts of the world and helped pay the bills .
