Driving from Dublin to Enniskerry each day I pass through the Scalp and the beautiful Sugarloaf Mountain appears in front of me. One day, after I’ve been studying the Japanese Masters, I think this mountain is own Mount Fuji! I begin to see it everywhere; Killiney, Dun Laoghaire, Dollymount.

This series is a small and humble bow to those artists and to our own Sugarloaf Mountain. There are 12 watercolour paintings

I recently worked with a wonderful group of children painting a mural at the entrance to the Oratory in Dun Laoghaire. This Oratory was decorated by Sr Concepta Lynch.
