As an avid motorsport fan, his earlier works concentrated on capturing local sporting legends such as Joey Dunlop MBE, OBE and Formula One star Eddie Irvine. Not wanting to focus just on motorsport, George Best,(Football) , Brian O’Driscoll (Rugby), Peter Canavan (GAA), Darren Clarke (Golf) and the latest edition of Snooker World Champion, Alex ‘HURRICANE’ Higgins. Each of the originals where reproduced in Limited Edition Prints and where possible, individually signed by the subjects. Many of these limited edition prints were sold into private collections both at home and worldwide.

Jazz scenes also are a favourite, giving the opportunity to bring colour to music, atmosphere, warmth and expression. His style with bold and spontaneous with confident brush strokes and exciting use of colour.
