I started painting signs in Edinburgh, Scotland, in the early 1990’s. Scottish & Newcastle Brewery employed me to upkeep signs and designs in their various pubs across the city.
When I moved to the west of Donegal in the mid 90’s, I was able to continue my trade, as well as gaining work painting murals.

This Mural in Greencastle is an image of a Greencastle yawl or drontheim, a traditional fishing boat for many centuries on the north coasts of Ireland and the northern seaboard of Britain. It was commissioned by Greencastle Community Development, and was completed with the great help of my old mate Gearoid Hayes, in August 1999.
