I'm an illustrator who lives by the sea with my beautiful dog Faolán, here in Strandhill, County Sligo. From mountaintops to streetscapes, wild and rugged coastlines, to beautiful lakes and scenery, I am grateful to live in such a special part of the world that inspires me every day. I have the pleasure of working from my studio at home in Strandhill on the West Coast of Ireland.

I studied Visual Communication in Letterkenny IT and in IADT Dublin and have been as a graphic designer for over 10 years, but recently made the transition to illustration as that's where my heart lies. I provide illustrative design for clients across numerous industries; from tourism campaigns to music festivals, children's' events to shop fronts, I love working with clients to deliver an original and creative visual solution featuring my own unique illustration style.
