“I use my artwork to express the feelings I have about the amazing beauty and brevity of life. I feel most alive and connected to the universe when making art. Nature is a huge inspiration and most of my works are centered around this theme.”

Sean often paints plein air, but also takes photos on location and uses these as a starting point in his art studio. He works intuitively letting the painting take on a life of its own.

Sean was born in Wellington in 1977 to parents from Belfast in Northern Ireland. He moved to Auckland when he was six and spent his school years growing up on the North Shore.Sean graduated from Elam School of Fine Arts in 2001 and has been exhibiting both nationally and internationally since then.

He is an avid surfer, traveller and musician. Sean currently lives at Bayly’s Beach in the Kaipara where he teaches art at a local high school and paints in his free time at his beach studio.
