Beyond tears

I am gone beyond tears,
The pain shimmers through me
Like the waking dream of a winter storm

We who have no hope stand
Held fast by grief the lead through our souls
An unending river of grey

No return, for us the Eagles never came
Abandoned on the edge of life
Watching the joy overhead beyond reach
Soar out and away.


I am an artist and designer working in oils, watercolours, pen & inks, textiles, pyrography, digital and mixed media. I seek to express and engender feeling and meaning through colour and form. I am inspired by light and landscape and the place humanity and particularly the feminine has between the two. I have also been working with pyrography techniques in Irish Woods. My work has in the past been selected for the Royal Ulster Academy (RUA) annual exhibition and I have and do exhibit at various venues, but exhibitions are rare as the work is always demanding to be made rather than displayed. Until Now.
