A short résumé

I live in Stockholm, Sweden and I recently became a part-time artist.

I was born and educated in Ireland. After leaving the National College of Art in 1984 I became an Art Director. I worked for advertising agencies in Dublin (1984-85), London (1985- 1990) and Stockholm (1990-2000).

After the millennium I became a Web Designer. Between 2000 and 2007 I ran my own business. I had clients such as The Swedish National Museum, The Technical Museum and The Architectural Museum of Sweden. I also produced websites for photographers, accountants and several architectural firms during that time.

Since 2007 I have been employed by Kanal 75. My typical working day is spent creating websites, blogs and banners promoting the sport of trotting and thoroughbred racing. Recently, since my bosses discovered I could draw I have been doing portraits and caricatures of the sports biggest personalities.

In 2011, after a thirty year break, I started drawing again. I tried my hand at life drawing and loved it. Then in 2012 I started painting watercolours for the first time and I loved this even more. I am now hopelessly addicted to it and spend everyday trying to improve my skills. I am very curious to know how far I can develop and what I can achieve!
