Home: About


I'm Niall, a painter-printmaker. I am interested in the use of the figure as a tool of communication for the artist, either to tell a story, or simply to say “I’m alive”. I paint from life in the street, in cafes, or the life drawing studio, in ink and watercolor, and use these as source material for imagined compositions in oils, where I use symbols and narrative.

My CV is available here

Some of the pieces displayed have a price, if not, please use the contact form to enquire. A selection of prints are available here.

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

from Alphabet, Inger Christensen
