I've been a freelance caricature artist and illustrator for over 20 years. I've found that the practice of drawing quick five minute caricatures of people at parties has provided me with skills relating to character design and illustration.
I know the importance of communication with the client and of deadlines.
When you've only got 5 minutes to make someone laugh with a drawing, you'd better know what you're doing!

Service Description

I specialize in portraiture, both serious and caricatured.

I also provide humorous and genre illustration.

I recently did the cover of a science journal called "Nature Neuroscience" featuring a mouse cocktail party.

In June 2014 I was one of twelve in Ireland chosen to compete in the Sky Arts Channel Portrait Competion. I painted a portrait of Colm Meaney in four hours which he chose as the one he'd like to have for himself.
