Davidson, Colin H (1961)

Colin H. Davidson was born in 1961 in Donaghadee, Co. Down but now lives in East Belfast. Though mainly a self-taught artist, he did attend a local college for a short time. It was here that he discovered his slight colour blindness, making it difficult to identify certain green and brown tones. Serving a four year apprenticeship in Harland & Wolff seems to have had a profound effect on the artist, who has expressed his sincere respect for the men and women who were employed there and the hardships they suffered. This influence can be directly witnessed in his paintings which tend to focus on scenes of ship workers in Belfast. Davidson claims inspiration from modern day impressionist Edward Seago, Trevor Chamberlain and American modernist Edward Hooper. Ref: Ross’s.

St.Patrick’s Hall, Dublin Castle” oil on panel (37.5″ x 52″), sold at Sotheby’s (London) – 21/11/2018 for £195,000.

St Patrick’s Hall, Dublin Castle is a highly significant and historic work, providing a rare view of both the interior of St Patrick’s Hall in Dublin Castle in the early to mid-19th century as well as of the high society gatherings that took place within it. Such a social gathering as depicted here is all the more poignant when one considers that it is quite possible the work was painted during the course of the Irish Famine from 1845-49, providing a striking juxtaposition between the fortunes of the privileged and the mass suffering of the rural Irish population. – Extract from the Sotheby’s catalogue note.

Drury, Keith (1964)


Northern Irish artist.

Drury, Susanna (c.1698 – c.1770)

Susanna Drury was a mysteriously obscure but very able painter whose views of the Giant’s Causeway in County Antrim are landmarks both in Irish topographical painting and in European scientific illustration. Her exact birth and death dates are not known but she was the sister of a Dublin miniature painter named Franklin Drury, who died in 1771. The first trustworthy views of the Giant’s Causeway ever produced, Susanna Drury’s gouaches of 1739-40 won the £25 premium of the Dublin Society in 1740 when the artist’s identity was disclosed to the Society by Dean Gabriel Maturin, a prominent Dublin Huguenot. This raises the question of whether Susanna Drury had Huguenot connections or may have been trained on the continent. The groups of fashionably-dressed figures in both of Susanna Drury’s paintings show that as early as 1740 the Giant’s Causeway had become a tourist attraction. Ref: BBC.


One of a pair of Drury’s 1839 watercolours held in the collection of the Ulster Museum.


Above – a further pair of watercolours dating from the same period were sold at Christies, London, “Glin Castle: A Knight in Ireland” sale – 7/5/2009 for £23,750.00. They originated in the Duke of Leinster’s collection and it’s uncertain which pair of watercolours won the Dublin Society prize mentioned at the top of this entry.

Duffy, Michelle

I specialise in both contemporary and traditional interpretations of the Irish landscape. I have a particular love for sunsets and water based scenes. Living close to Lough Melvin and not far from the Wild Atlantic Way inspires me daily and wandering with my camera is the perfect way to find my motivation and inspiration. My work is created mainly in acrylic paint, pencils, chalks and charcoal.

My main aim is to create Art that will last a lifetime and capture the immense beauty that we live in and sometimes in this hectic world don’t get time to sit down and truly appreciate!

I welcome commissions and can be contacted at my page here: Camlake Canvas

Duggan, Fiona

I am born and bred in Bray, Co.Wicklow but living in Rathmines now. I am self taught, I’ve been doodling and drawing since forever and it gives me great relaxation and head space. The medium I use are pro markers and copic markers, I find the colours are very vibrant, they are also are similar to watercolours, in that they blend, but the colours don’t fade. I like to build up colour by using dots, I find if you look closely, there are so many pigments and different colours, that a couple of colours wouldn’t give you. I do commissions and also prints. Each print is individually touched up and takes about an hour to complete, so each one is quite unique, I am not sure I’d like to sell exact copies.
I can be contacted through Instagram duggo1972 and all my artwork is up there.
