A self taught artist, I first discovered Celtic Art nearly thirty years ago when I
became interested in the history and mythology of the Celts. This, coupled with
a fascination for abstract art, lead to an interest and then passion for Celtic
artwork, studying the layout and teaching myself how to draw it out.

Finding various books on the subject, particularly George Bains Methods of
Construction and the works of Aiden Meehan, aided my learning and the task
became much simpler.

I have had international success with gallery exhibits and work sold in the UK,
the USA and Australia.

The photography started years ago with an Olympus Trip point and shoot, a present
from my Mother, over the years I have collected many cameras including a Chinon
35mm SLR and a Chinon Genesis Macro 35mm. Eventually I purchased a Canon EOS
500D.  Most of my recent photographs were taken with the Canon, which I have
been  using to experiment with star trails and lightning shots. Images will be online
soon.
