Welcome to Sligo Oil Painting
I was born in Terenure, Dublin in 1959 and moved to Sligo in September 1978 mainly to study fine art at Sligo Art Department in the IT. At the end of 1980, I decided to temporarily postpone my art studies to pursue other things outside the world of art.
As the years passed I began to paint again and put into practice not only what I studied at college but also what I experimented with, developing new painting styles and drawing techniques of my own.
I began my oil painting classes in 1999 at St Annes Youth Club renting a small room there. In 2009 I moved to other venues around Sligo town such as the Northside Centre, MCR Centre, Abbeyville Centre, the old school house in Mullaghmore County Sligo and more recently to Riverstown's Douglas Art Group.
I opened my own studio in Grange in September 2013 where most of my classes now take place.
