Here are two portrait commissions completed recently. Back to basics on these using only pencils.

This is a Christmas card that I was commissioned to create for The Gathering in Ferns, Co. Wexford which takes place next summer. It will have a medieval flavour to it, which I tried to include in the illustrations. It will be a weekend worth making a trip to 'Fearna Mór'!

I had the privilege to create an illustration for the wedding invitations of my good friends, Sarah and Justin recently. I even got a mention in the groom's speech! Here are some pictures of the final invites...
Thank you to all who attended my exhibition in October. For those who could not come, I have included the new paintings here. Any unsold paintings are available to purchase on my website. I have some limited edition prints available there also.

Some of you may have seen this on my facebook page recently, but I got the chance to present Katie Taylor with the illustration I worked on. Michael Ring TD opened the presentation which took place in the National Stadium, Dublin. Katie was very appreciative and said that she was 'glad that the illustration depicted her throwing a punch and not the other way around'! The presentation featured in the papers the following day as well as on broadsheet.ie. Below is the page from the Irish Independent.
