Born in Trim, Co. Meath, in 1950, he studied at the National College of Art & Design in Dublin. His early large scale canvases were influenced by American abstract expressionism and have since evolved in a more minimalist direction, working from detached geometric beginnings towards images that incorporate a sense of reality, a distillation of the experienced world. Currently his work practice incorporates painting on canvas and aluminum as well as drawing and print.
