Supporting our artists is the least we can do this Christmas, especially when they're this good! Seo triúr ealaíontóirí a sheas amach dúinn ó Ghaeltachtaí na tíre.
Dómhnal is an illustrator and artist, from Dún Chaoin in Corca Dhuibhne, West Kerry. His art is mystical, magical and often relates to his native area's folk tales and culture. Dómhnal is available for commission.
We love Port na bPúcaí, described by Dómhnal as:
'The Tune of the Fairies (or Ghosts)' - this tale tells of how this haunting, lonely tune was composed on one of the westerly Blasket Islands known as Inis Mhic Uibhleáin. People used to say that the island was an enchanted place and if you listened you just might hear the fairy music. Do you believe in the fairies? I do not, but they're there!
Barry is another Kerry-based artist and this year with Fungie's farewell to the waters of Corca Dhuibhne, he has created this gorgeous poster called 'There he is!'
Elouise's works are like walking into another world; whimsical, wild with a special love for nature. Elouise describes her work as 'expansive, nourishing, dreamy and feminine. My paintings are like gentle whispers of joy and solace'.
