I'm Niall. I'm a cosmologist by trade but have spent the last while painting, drawing and floating around Mexico among other places. This website is my record of things I've seen and painted.

How to buy
Most of the pieces displayed have a price for the original. Prints are generally 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). I sign them as I sell them. Framing and postage and packaging are not included in the prices quoted.
Given the times, 50% of the list price will go to Help Refugees, a fantastic charity providing humanitarian aid to and advocating for refugees worldwide. Here's a bit more info about this stuff. The remainder will hopefully keep me in painting supplies and matcha.
Recently I've mostly worked on the road, attempting to travel light, with a few watercolor paper pads and gouache paints. I like gouache. It can achieve anything from the dreamy spontaneity of a watercolor through to layered, vibrant opaque strokes of life.
