2001 moving to Ireland and concentrating on painting original canvases

"I prep my canvases with a black "skin" which gives the work a very special structure".

The subjects vary over the years, but after the arrival of the new
"silly cat" and some chickens, the feel good and tickled pink series got painted.

The last few years are dominated by very contented red ladies and white cats

I still regulary travel to Holland and Belgium to visit  new and existing clients
