Painting a Life’s Journey
Paintings are like journeys for me. One of the most challenging parts of composing a painting is reaching the moments of uncertainty. It’s the line between giving up or struggling on. It is somewhat similar to what I experienced on naomhóg voyages. I don’t consider my paintings to be ever finished, but rather ongoing expressions; the artists job is to always explore new possibilities and move on beyond the boundaries.

My Adventures on the Sea
In 2011 I followed through with my fascination with the Naomhóg and teamed up with the poet and boat builder Danny Sheehy to build one. Further motivated by this, Danny and my self went on to take on epic voyages with other fellow travellers and musicians.
