In 2007 he won the Curator’s Award and the Bank of Ireland Emerging Artist Award at EV+A (Ireland’s pre-eminent contemporary arts showcase).

Internationally he has exhibited solo at the European Parliament, Brussels and was part of the Irish representation at the Florence Biennale 2005. He is a regular exhibitor at the Llewellyn Alexander Gallery in London. His paintings are included in many corporate and private collections worldwide.
