Originally from the South of England, I now live in Co. Wicklow and work in Dublin. I started my career in advertising in London before moving to Dublin in 1979; the intended six months stay is now well into its fourth decade.
After working in several advertising agencies, I was a freelance graphic designer and illustrator before leaving the commercial sector altogether. I now express myself visually through photography.
To my left is the ruin of the flue chimney that lies close to the summit of Carrickgolligan Hill. The site of a former lead mining and smelting centre, the mine opened around 1807 and operated until its closure in 1913. The slopes of Carrickgolligan Hill are now heavily wooded with starkly symmetrical evergreens, commercially planted to replace man’s earlier activity. Yet nature’s forces still assert their authority and leave evidence to remind us.
