‘The Cardinal’s Portrait’ – NYC, MAY 2019.
This May 2019 I will return to New York City for the unveiling of my portrait of His Eminence Cardinal Timothy Michael Dolan, Archbishop of New York.
The unveiling will be split into two nights with a soft opening on May 9th in the gallery space and the grand unveiling in the Loretto Theatre on May 22nd.
The show will include a short documentary feature film screened at the Loretto Theatre, the unveiling, a stage discussion with Cardinal Dolan and song by Owen O’ Suilleabhain at the Sheen Center for thought and culture.
I’m really excited about this launch. Keep an eye for updates and info on my instagram feed.

Adare Manor Commission
Several months ago I received a prestigious commissioned project from JP and his son John Mc Manus to create a series of paintings for the Adare Manor Hotel.
