about.

I grew up in the leafy suburbs of Carryduff, Belfast, studied art to A level then dropped school to become a drummer in a Rock'n'Roll band.
 
Preacher John was the band and we were on the Good Vibrations record label under the famous Mr. Terry Hooley (The Undertones released Teenage Kicks on Good Vibrations records) I then took a job as a designer in the printing and packaging world when the music career wasn't paying the rent. Finally, myself and my girlfriend moved to Spain in 2000 for 11 years. We ran our own bar and I continued to play drums in a blues band. Eventually returning home to Ireland in 2011. 

 

I now paint contemporary / pop / retro icons from the music, sport and movie worlds on a large scale, counting Mr. Steve Garrigan (Kodaline) and Mr. Donal Gallagher (Rory's brother) among my collectors. 

My most notable piece is probably my tribute to Rory Gallagher which the family used as an album cover, The French Connection, released on 21st April 2018 on vinyl.

My original work is now in Ireland, Spain, England, France, Japan, Australia and the USA to name but a few countries.
