I was educated at Belfast Royal Academy, lived and worked in Belfast, until retiring to Portrush in 1999. I have been familiar with the North Antrim Coast since the mid-sixties, exchanging the city, for the tranquility of Portbalintrae at the weekends, during the 'Troubles'.
Photography has played a major part of my life since the age of ten, when I received my first camera, a Kodak 'Brownie' 125, the beginner's camera of it's day. At twelve, I survived the challenge, and fumes, of developing and printing black and white photographs in a corner of my bedroom!
More than half a century later, most of my work in the digital age is in colour, involving mainly the sea, beaches and harbours. Prints available on paper or canvas, from 8 X 12 to A0. With the breathtaking scope the coastline offers, this year I have launched a series of panoramic cards, depicting local scenes, and also some further afield in Ireland. These cards have matching envelopes.
Other pastimes I enjoy are travel and music.
