Darren was born in Belfast in 1944. He has always had a loving relationship with art. As a youth he remembers fondly art classes under the tutorage of Desmond Kinney and attending lectures delivered by Neil Shawcross at Belfast Technical College.
Darren is an Irish Artist who enjoys working with light, shade and colour and in the tactile quality of heavy paint on canvas (Impasto). Darren’s skill lies in his technique of storytelling on canvas. The subjects he chooses to paint demand a high degree of skill, and he shows us this with confidence and an assuredness as he captures the moment, experience and mood of the time. His style is impressionistic and figurative.
Darren’s paintings are in many corporate collections in Ireland, the Continent and the U.S.A.
