An old Irish Artist and mentor of mine told me
“Every artist dips his brush in his own soul, and paints his own nature into his pictures”
I draw my inspiration from old songs, stories and memories from my early days in Ireland.
Ireland today has greatly changed but the Ireland of my youth was a colourful place. There were Gypsies on the back roads with painted wagons, raggedy kids and dogs. Every town had Horse fairs and country markets with cattle, sheep, and wonderful characters. Moonshine men, itinerant musicians and Ballad singers in old Pubs, I remember it all vividly and very fondly. I sang my Irish ballads about all that rough shod royalty as I led the Irish Rovers around the world.
