My father is my greatest inspiration. I remember when i grew up in Ireland, he was spending hours and hours on end in his atelier. I would come in and watch him work. Sometimes it was a big painting, sometimes an aquarel or a drawing. I remember wishing i could some day be capable of these wonders. This great imagination and then just letting it flow out of your hands. I have great admiration for my father for he also is an autodidact. Still he is working as an artist and when i look at his work i feel inspired to do the same.
