His paintings reveal a remarkable understanding of light, one which transforms his everyday subject matter into memorable and moving images. 40 plus years of exhibition in both Irish and American Galleries has seen his work recognized by awards from the Massachusetts Cultural Council, the John Stobart Foundation,
Plein Air Magazine, and international juried art shows. Vincent has offered workshops in Ireland, Canada, and throughout the US. He teaches weekly classes at the New Art Center in Newton, Massachusetts.

Quill Cultural Centre and many private collectors. In addition, Vincent has created set designs for theater companies and productions including A Christmas Celtic Sojourn, Atlantic Steps, Cork City Ballet, the Huntington Theater Company, and Kieran Jordan Dance. Four of his paintings were used on the set of the movie Mystic River
