George loves to bring out individual creativity, and will teach you with patience and a kind heart.
George was born and raised in Limerick, Ireland, George moved to Tennessee in 2016 to marry his lovely wife, Debbie. Feeling immediately at home, he was struck by how much the Tennessee hills and friendly people reminded him of Ireland.
A self-taught artist, from an early age George was intrigued by art in its entire media, but he was especially captivated by the works of the Old Masters. Having used watercolor, charcoal, and pencil to hone his skills, he now exclusively paints in oils.
George has exhibited and sold paintings at galleries in Ireland, and lately in the U.S. Many of his paintings have found homes all over the world.
