His complementary skill of carving and gilding affords him a rare ability to see a piece through to its completion.

 The focus of his art is from the 1st Century to the 9th Century in IrelandThe inspiration for his work is Irish customs, and folklore, long forgotten by many which were carried on in the oral tradition.
