I am an artist and illustrator based in Alpine, Texas, and was raised in Belfast, Northern Ireland. I studied art, design, animation, and illustration at the University of Ulster at Belfast.
My paintings and drawings are part of the UTV Art Collection, one of Ireland’s most extensive and distinguished corporate collections. For the summer 2007 issue of the Southern Review I was the featured artist. I have exhibited in Marfa, Texas at the Greasewood Gallery and the Colores Gallery, the Rinconada Gallery and Dumitrescu Gallery in Alpine, Texas, and the Elaine Sommers Gallery in Belfast, Northern Ireland. My artwork was included in Drawing Inspiration: Visual Artists at Work (Delmar Cengage Learning), by Michael Fleishman.
Clients I have illustrated for include The Local Palate magazine, the University of California Press, the Ulster Tatler, The University of Ulster at Belfast, Texas Highways magazine, Texas Parks and Wildlife, Gastronomica: The Journal of Food and Culture, The Writer’s Magazine, The Herb Companion, and the University of Texas at Austin.
I teach a number of design, art, digital illustration, computer game design, and animation classes at Sul Ross State University.
