Born in Hatch Street, Dublin 15th May 1945 and grew up beside the river Dargle in Wicklow (hence the song "Darksome Burn" on 'Alternative Medicine').

Shipped off to England from the age of 7 to be schooled in academies of repression and intellect (Ludgrove and Winchester College). At the age of 12 wished to be a pianist/composer, at 14 a poet and at 16 a painter. Has practised all three since then.At 18 left school for Home in Ireland and the life of an untutored painter.

At 19 spent the first 3 months of a two year scholarship at Konstfackskolan, Stockholm studying Textile Design and embroidery in a class of 19 girls. Ran away to paint fulltime ... visiting the Beatnik joints and jazz clubs of Copenhagen on the way.

After starting to exhibit paintings professionally in Dublin in 1964 joined the band Dr. Strangely Strange and began to play pubs and Arts Centres around Dublin.
Lived in a house called 'The Orphanage' (Later referred to by Phil Lynott in his album title) with wife to be "Orphan Annie". Friends with Phil and Gary Moore who played occasionally with the Strangelies. Became friends with The Incredible String Band who visited Dublin and they introduced us to their producer Joe Boyd who produced Dr. Strange's two albums back then.

1968 to 1971 toured extensively through England and Ireland with Dr. Strangely Strange and then retired to be married at a Buddhist wedding in a Tibetan monastery in Scotland, Samye Ling.

In 1969 bought an old shool near Allihies in West Cork and went there to paint for the next 32 years. See Art site

Maintained an interest in music and played in small combos peripatetically. (1980s saw a burst of Dr. Strangely Strange activity) After playing at an 'Incredible String Band' weekend in Leeds in 1996 the original band reformed with longterm members Joe Thoma (fiddle) and TJM Tutty (bass) to record that difficult Third album 'Alternative Medicine' (Big Beat CDWIKD 177). From this time on became very active musically again and played a residency in The Old Bakery Restaurant, Castletownbere with Padraig Murphy, drums under the name of "Toast Your Own". In 1999 started recording 'Midnight Fry' with many friends involved and spent two and a half years working on it. 2002 sees the start of a small recording facility at Reentrisk and some fresh collaborations with newly- met musicians (Irish and Indian).
