My childhood home was on a small farm beside the sea on Achill Island. The farm teaches you about manual work. Long days on the bog and in the fields, cutting hay, bringing home the turf and setting potatoes. One year we built our own house from blueprints. I started doodling and dreamt of a job where I could draw buildings.
Get yourself a real job. I completed my Architectural Degree in Bolton St, Technical University Dublin where I met some incredible people and we drew buildings together in a large studio for 6 years.
For over 24 Years I have helped draw / design sets for Ireland's largest film productions including Jurassic World, Michael Collins, Vikings, Into the Badlands, King Arthur, Halo and Ella Enchanted and Moone Boy. For companies including Amblin, Ridley Scott, RTE, BBC, HBO, AMC, Showtime, Warner Bros, Disney and Universal Films. Microsoft, History Channel etc. I work in the Art Dept where people draw films sets all day long.
Over the last couple of years I have been slowly making progress with some of my own art. Some fine people buy them, thank you!
I completed the Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain course in Guildford with Brian Bomeisler and a truly inspiring group of people from around the world aged from 25 - 75. We drew for 5 days and drank for 2 nights.
will involve more scribbling..
