While working as a sculptor I found painting a relaxing alternative to the heavy labour of working with stone. 

Making compositional plans for a painting and executing preliminary sketches also helped me to hone the important graphic skills I needed to plan and execute sculpture works. The seeking of forms and visions to paint in two dimensions helped towards three dimensional ideas. Here is a collection of finished paintings and sketches. 

I made far more money from painting than sculpting and even sold two paintings to the Office of Public Works here in Ireland. Some of the paintings depicted here are now in collections in the U.S. and Europe.
