Am creative and use my imagination in depicting nature and animals in my paintings and prints. Have a keen interest in American black blues and gospel music and also jazz, and opera and operetta. Reside in the green countryside of Southern Ireland and have worked for many years in my studio undertaking commisions from clients in Berlin and Niedersachen in Germany. You could say that this is a brief resume of my career, but from a Christian view-point I was baptised a Catholic but have fallen away from the Church through many misgivings by those clerics who did not practise what they preached & have found more humility and humanity amongst Luterans, Protestants, &, ironically, athetists than so-called Catholics. I have always prayed to an "eternal and everlasting God" even though He has been silent to my prayers! My parents suffered cruelly and needlessly and one wonders where God was in all of this, but doubtless He helped them through their worst moments.
