The story behind...

Towards Napoleon’s Nose From Queen’s Island

The Cavehill is always a joy for me to paint having spent my childhood just under Napoleon’s nose in a street near Belfast Castle.

My bedroom window looks out over the docks and Queen’s Island.

Sitting on my windowsill, I would watch how the ever changing light transformed the colours and ambiance of the docks. 

I wondered about the people who worked down there.

At night the lights of the docks twinkled and I fell asleep to familiar clunky industrial noises and foghorns.
