He was Northern Ireland’s Rome Scholar in 1981-2 completing a series of prints illustrating the work of Irish Poet Padraic Fiacc. Marriage brought him to the US in 1984 and since then he has lived and worked in Philadelphia and Long Island. Now a resident of Lebanon PA, he has served for many years on the board of Lebanon Valley Council on the Arts and promotes Community Arts through the First Friday Art Walk. His involvement in Celtic Music has led to the creation of the long-running Lebanon Third Saturday sessions at Niko’s Bar and Restaurant in Lebanon. His most recent projects have combined his art and design skills with his interest in song to put together CDs of Celtic Christmas Music and songs relating to James Joyce’s Ulysses.
