New Arrival - Pat Walsh

Born in Castlepollard, Co. Westmeath, Pat Walsh has come and gone from painting, including one lapse of 28 years. However his interest always returned, and since his last return to painting in 1980, he has studied under such distinguished names as Thomas Ryan P.R.H.A., Kenneth Webb, Susan Webb, Pam Skerritt, Chris Jones and Dick Free.

Apart from exhibiting in many group shows, Pat’s work is in private collections in many parts of the world as well as the public collection of Premier Periclase Ltd. He has sold extensively to the United States.

Pat has devoted his time mainly to painting since his retirement in 1989, but also spends time writing, and has had one story collection published to date, and a number of other work in completion. Married to Dorothy, they have five children, one girl and four boys. Pat's other pastimes include gundog training and country walks.

New Arrival - Philip Gray

Philip Gray was born in Cork and lived here until he turned six, then his parents, Albert and Wendy decided to move to Dublin for a few years. Without doubt his passion for the sea can be traced back to his childhood in Cork. He inherited his creative and adventurous spirit from his mother’s side of the family, a lineage that very fittingly nurtured both sailors and artists. Among his siblings there is a graphic designer and an interior designer, so creativity is certainly in the blood.
"Summer Love"
His passion and his insistence on perfection never wavers as he can be seen in each of his composition, the sheer beauty and impact of his images regularly stop people in their tracks. Diverse in both style and medium, Philip constantly demands and explores new ideas and possibility to express life, to recapture a fleeting moment, to record a time in history and to translate an emotional thought from deep within.
