About me

Industry Arts
Occupation Steampunk jewellery designer. Artist & Mixed Media Dabbler
Location North Strand, Dublin 3, Ireland
Introduction I've worked as an artist at home in Dublin & in London & France too. I've worked in Freehand Decorative Signage,I've worked as a professional muralist & have carried out various commissions in this regard & also in portraiture paintings.I tired of the restrictions imposed by this type of art & really didn't have the lasting devotion needed & so now I really enjoy the whimsical-with-a-dark- twist art & creating Steampunk Jewellery. I live in Dublin City in a 120 year old red brick house on the North Strand a few mins walk into the city. I love hearing the trains go overhead & the house slightly vibrates -it's as peaceful to me as a stream may be to another!
