Tonnta Cover

One of my paintings made the cover of Tonnta surf magazine this winter. I'm delighted about it and The issue comes with a 6 pages interview and... ... a surprise.

New Emerald Surfwear tees

Emerald Surfwear just released their new collection. One of their new tees is part collaboration we've had for the past year now and features one of my artwork. I'm delighted with the way they came out and I want to say a bit thanks to Alan of Emerald Surfwear for his great appreciation for the emergent Irish surf art and his support to artists.

Surfboard painting for Emerald Surfwear

Alan of Emerald Surfwear, looking please with a board painting I did for them. The board itself is on display at the Emerald Surfwear shop in Galway.

Nice Rack !!


I made a few boards before but I never had a proper rack for it. Since I needed one immediately to start glassing a board I'd just shapped, but didn't have access to proper 2x4 pieces of wood to make it, I decided to improvise with what I had. Here's a small shaping rack I made from old pallet wood.

Flip it over and there is my glassing stand. happy.

aaaand more frames

Well, it seems my frame attracted some attention. The folks from Emerald Surfwear (who also use some of my art for their clothing line) asked me to do a couple of sturdy looking driftwood frames for some of their display tee shirts for their shop in Limerick. Check it out

More Frames


Finished this frame for one of my paintings. I think it really works well with it. The painting is currently on display at the Mello Cafe in Bundoran

Daily Painting - Green Wall

If you've been in the sea when waves are coming in then i'm sure you'll appreciate the personal feel of this painting. It's that split second, that last vision of an unbroken wall of water coming at you while you're grinning from ear to ear. At that moment, very little matters ; worries are washed away and as the wave passes over you, you find yourself still smilling ... and smilling is what life is about.

New Project : Sheep Mentality

Hi all, here's my new project.
I decided to add to my list of projects a small weekly comic strip called: Sheep Mentality

Sheep Mentality is about surfing and... sheep.
No really, it is...

To be precise it's about the sheep in all of us surfers. No matter how independent we think we are, there's something fundamentaly herd-like about us.

Hoope you like it
