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.

Artist's Statement; ''The making of my art is a solitude endeavor
between me, my material and the subconscious mind and to bring that
balance into a reality. I like to think that my work reflects my
thoughts and values with the interaction of my human emotions but also
in breaking away from conventions and that for me as an artist is very
much the self discovery.''
The CLOWNS ... a symbolic work in human form of conscious and subconscious ... which seems to show up in a lot of my work over the years. The clown with the tramp-like hat is the subconscious self. He can swim and fly at the same time, totally carefree and exits only outside of the conscious and that's why he is looking away from the second clown ... conscious. Looking straight ahead and aware of everything that's going on, emotions, thoughts, fears, pain, all the human stuff that's in play everyday ... but at the back of conscious it's all sinking. The boat, Ego is split into two and going down but thought, fear, pain and the emotions are hanging on to conscious for their survival ... the story of all human beings.
