Illustration

I have illustrated and designed several interpretative displays for environmental centres, illustrated book covers and poems and produced 70 graphic illustrations for a field guide.

Illustrations may also be produced for Graphic Design projects, such as logos, decorative borders and backgrounds.

evolution project 2006

This commission was proposed to me by Sister Noreen, a nun from Portumna, County Galway in an effort to communicate with a Catholic public the inherent harmony between Creation and Evolution theory. Any media could be used and the possibilities were endless. After three years I have come to these 8 images, created using Paint Shop Pro 5 and Adobe Photoshop, and a pile of words. This project is presently ongoing.
