Liam, was born in 1958 in Glenariffe, the so called Queen of the Nine Glens of Antrim. A gifted artist who is entirely self-taught; Liam was greatly inspired by the late Charles McAuley, a fellow Glen’s man.
Liam’s interest in painting started at an early age when he spent many hours outdoors sketching the natural beauty of his surroundings. He liked to sketch cows and hens on local farms and also birds which came to feed in his garden. This natural interest in the beautiful glens scenery was an early indication in the career that Liam was to pursue.
With a considered and careful use of colour, Liams art brings the natural beauty of Ireland to life in a subtle yet affective way. Liam still lives in Glenravel on the edge of the green glens where he paints full time. He prefers to paint outdoors where he can take in the fresh natural beauty.
