About me

Gender MALE
Location Cork, Ireland
Introduction I have been painting with pastels for 25 years or so, and have learned from the very practical publications of artists like Alan Flattmann, Daniel E. Greene, and more recently Richard McKinley and Ellen Eagle. The work of other artists who work in the medium is always of interest, hence this blog, and I am happy to have met many of them, and interviewed some for the Pastel Journal. Still Life is the subject matter that most interests me, and my pastels have been exhibited in Ireland, in France and in China.
