Caricatures at the Adare Village Festival!

Adare is quite possibly the prettiest village in Ireland and I was chuffed to be invited to draw at the annual Village Festival!

While I was drawing, I heard a voice behind me say, "He's the best sketch artist I've ever seen!" Awwww, shucks....Thanks Debbie!

The Rabbit Castle- Finished!

It's finally done and hanging in my daughter's room. Painted on the closet door with acrylics.

I was inspired by one of the local castle ruins- Ireland's full of them! You can climb a hill to explore it, see the landscape through the windows, and imagine you're in the middle ages. I also thought it would be fun to try a bit of trompe-l'œil (Fool the Eye). When you stand in the right spot, for a split second you'll actually believe the window is in front of you!

If you'd like to commission a mural or painting, feel free to contact me.
