“I have been painting and sketching since I was young and even then I knew I wanted to pursue a career in art. I spent many hours, days and months practicing art and with the support from my close family and friends, I became a full-time professional artist.

I can’t imagine having a more interesting profession other than painting.

When I was fourteen I held my first exhibition which was based on seascapes, particularly the R.M.S. Titanic. I received huge interest and great feedback from the public and fellow artists. For a period of time I was known only as ‘the Titanic guy’.

Over time I moved onto urban scenes and commissioned portraits In 1998 I was honored to present a commissioned painting of the historDSC_0166ic Castletown Gates, Celbridge to the former president of Ireland, Mary McAleese.

I traveled all around rural Ireland, painting different landscape scenes, villages and towns but my true interest was in wildlife and equine.

I traveled through many parts of Europe and Australia in search of new encounters and opportunities.

When I returned to Ireland in 2009, I began working on an African wildlife themed exhibition and built a collection of paintings which fabricated an auspicious show. This bedded the foundations of becoming a professional artist.

I try to get a photogenic persuasion with my work. My preferred medium is acrylic on canvas. When I have a painting in mind,  I start by researching the subject through fieldwork photography and with a collaboration of different images, a knowledge of colour, light and composition, I can begin the painting.

I find great inspiration in Ireland’s wildlife and love visiting different parts of the country in search of new idea’s.

To all my relatives, collectors, close friends and fellow artists who will recognize themselves, I can’t thank you enough for all your support and encouragement”.


I first bought a drawing from Jason last year and was over the moon with the quality . So I then asked him to draw a portrait of Mike Tyson for my son who is an avid boxing fan . To say I was pleased with the result would be and understatement . His work is nothing short of perfect. I will shortly be getting him to do a portrait of my daughter in the near future.

Jason created a wonderful portrait of our daughter, it is stunning and captures a moment in time. A talented artist and a nice guy. Thanks Jason.

A very talented artist , the portrait of my grandson is amazing I can’t stop looking at it . A gentleman to do business with . The work you’ve done for the 1916 centenary is fantastic.

This Guy is a truly Amazing Artist. I have never seen anyone draw like him. Just check out his artwork here that is all I can say.

Thank you so much Jason for a wonderful depiction of my Mum (Elizabeth), my son David and Karen on their wedding day. You have captured – not only our features – but also our emotions on the day. You are indeed very gifted.

I commissioned a portrait of my late brother, as a Christmas gift for my parents. The portrait is excellent, my whole family love it.
