Interests and Personality

BiographyBorn Limerick, Ireland. Self-taught artist & poet. Recent exhibition: Greenslade Gallery, which was opened by the mayor Ian Dickson. I paint out of love for life, I get lost in a world of color, form and texture. I wonder at where my imagination will take me each time I consider an idea for a painting. I often reflect on my childhood years, moments with my mother, talking about my day or hers while the oven sends out a warming scent, of hot milk and burnt sugar; from the rice pudding lying there. So many treasures to draw on and far too many to keep only for ones self. Best Wishes Joseph O'Donovan For more on biography go to web site: Your contact is important to me, if you'd like to leave a message about a picture, ask me about a problem you have with one of your own paintings - I may be able to help, commission a work of art, or own an existing piece, contact me.
InterestsPoetry - - this is my website for my poems. Painting, films - mainly fantasy/Sci-fiction. Music - all kinds.
