Paintings, sketches, wanderings, wonderings



I'm Niall, a painter. I'm inspired by the beautiful places I've lived, and the characters I've encountered there, from my Cambridge neighbourhood to the bathing spots of Dublin. I work in ink, gouache and oil. 


Most of the pieces displayed have a price for the original. Some prints are also available - enquire for pricing on these if not listed.

If you'd like to buy an original or a print, or have any questions, or just want to say hello, you can use the form at the bottom of the page (or just contact me directly if you already have my contact details). Framing and postage and packaging are not included in the prices quoted.

I'm running a fundraiser right now - see my Cambridge at night shop

Recently I've mostly worked a lot on the road, attempting to travel light, with a few watercolor paper pads and gouache paints. When in one place for a while, I work more with oil, working on still lifes or turning studies into larger pieces.

A selection of recent work is distributed across the galleries below. Click on an image below to get to one of the galleries, and then click on an image for more info (e.g. an anecdote, prices, dimensions etc.)

in the dream there was no one familar;

I met only the black scrutiny 

of an apricot tree in bloom, turning

around as it left suddenly

perhaps it was left there one summer 

when the world was as white as a feast,

before I had learned that a dreamer

must dream like the trees, be a dreamer 

of fruit to the last
