Ireland was the first country that I visited after leaving my comfortable 9 to 5 job to explore the world and my love of art. I spent a month in Ireland, mostly divided between the cities of Dublin and Galway. But I saw just enough of the charm of Ireland from its beautiful landscapes to its charming cities to fall in love with Irish culture. My Irish artwork has been among my most popular selling prints every since I returned. And I think that’s at least in some part because people who love Ireland see the same love for that place and its people in my Irish prints.
Luckily I have enjoyed most of the places where I have traveled. And there are places that I have liked so much I’ve been again and again. Yet when I look back on my prints of Ireland, it’s the one place that I have a genuine feeling of homesickness. From the streets and quays of Dublin to the gorgeous Irish seaside in Galway, I felt a deep connection to my brief life there. There was just an ineffable quality of Ireland that transcended the raw beauty of the landscapes and cities. I can’t explain it, but I have no doubt it influenced my artwork.
And I’m proud to know that my Irish artwork has connected with people who have never set foot on the shores of Ireland. Connecting with people who have been there or lived there is one thing, but when your art prints connect with people who have never seen the places depicted, you know you have captured the magic of the place.
Thanks to those past art patrons who felt my love for Ireland in the artwork they purchased! And thanks in advance for those who are anticipating the addition of a little of my Irish art to their walls!
Your interest in my artwork is most appreciated!
The art you decorate with is something that you will look at for years to come. This is true whether it is wall art for your home or a public space in your place of business. Paint colors may come and go, but the artwork often outlives the rest of your decor choices.
That is why I am more than happy to answer any of your questions. Whether you want to know more about a specific piece of art or have a more general question, please don’t hesitate to contact me. I love the opportunity to discuss the story behind my art as much as sharing helpful details.
I am also open to discussing any special requests you may have. Perhaps you have a special decorating challenge or need artwork tailored to fit a specific space? Or you have a special design opportunity to discuss?
Well, I have always enjoyed challenging projects, so just ask!
This is only a portion of my Irish artwork. I am still in the process of updating my galleries. To see the rest, please see my Full Irish Print Gallery available through Fine Art America.
