About the Artist
I was born Easter Sunday 1949 and there were grand fireworks in the Phoenix Park that night. That notwithstanding, after attempts to educate myself in O´Connells schools and U.C.D, I felt a great desire to see the world and took off in 1969 and after some convoluted peregrinations settled 1974 in Germany where I have lived since. I am a self trained artist.In 1986 I discovered the wonderful combination of wood and light and decided that this would be my medium. I started to build my sculptures which evolved over the years to the present forms. I have exhibited in many galleries in Germany and sell at Arts and craft fairs here. In September 2016 I exhibited at the Sculpture-in-Context in the Botanic gardens. This was a wonderful coming home for me as I grew up in Drumcondra and it meant a lot to me that I won the peoples choice award.
