I am a professional working artist from Swords, Co. Dublin with over 20 years of experience providing a premium service of commissioned canine portrait paintings in Ireland. I qualified with a Bachelor’s degree in Art in Industry and Design in 1994, continued my career into the animation & illustration industries.
My canine portraits developed from my absolute passion & love for dogs.
My very first dog fell into my life as I walked into work one day to Fred Wolf Films back in 1997, where I worked as a scenic artist at the time. We took him in as a rescue & named him Fion, a black German Shepherd who was never meant to live past his first night.
Thankfully, he survived & continued to live with us for another 17 years. Fion’s legacy lives on today as we took in our latest two rescue dogs Kendo & Yogi from ‘Dogs in Distress’, 6 years with us today.
