Iain is an old friend and highly respected singer song writer. He won an Ivor Novello award for co writing Snow Patrol’s final straw album and his music has featured on shows like greys anatomy etc.  Anyway, he’s also a pet and he’s in town tonight so we’re high-tailing it into the city to see him play live and catch up. If you’re in the Dublin area it’s 8.30pm at Odessa – tickets at the door. You will not be disappointed!


This abstract has emerged into a landscape something reminiscent of that troublesome volcano that can not be pronounced. However, it’s genesis was in fact very far from the landscape it became. I saw a image recently of a wolf feeding on a fresh kill somewhere cold and arctic. The darkness of the meat and the softness of the fur stayed with me and this is how it came out in paint!
