Following a move to Kilkenny in 1985 Mick produced his first stone sculpture in September of that year and realised that Kilkenny Limestone was a material of immense versatility and one with which he felt very at home working with.
For the past 30 years he has explored its qualities through carving, cutting, laminating, sandblasting, polishing, surface treatment and drawing on this ancient and durable material.
For the first 15 years he produced mainly gallery pieces of modest scale for exhibit in one man shows, group shows and; following a move to Galway in 1989, in his own gallery in Spiddal, Co. Galway until 1998.The last 15 years his work has been predominantly large scale for public places.
He often combines other materials with limestone ; such as bronze, corten steel and stainless steel, in these larger works.
2010 saw another move back to Cork where he worked at The National Sculpture Factory until 2016.
