|" I live and work in the most north-westerly county, Donegal, in Ireland.|
My particular obsession is painting in the landscape.|
|I am working in oil paint on canvas or hessian.|
" That is a brief summary of my painting method. Also for the last fifteen years I have returned to the Land Art
which I did in the 1970's and 80's.|
That is - Making Embroidery and Burying it.
I find the two disciplines compliment each other. While making embroidery I have time to medidate on the landscape into which I will put it. This is very helpful for me when I make paintings in similar locations. "
