Healy, Brian

I have been drawing/painting since about the age of 6. Every artist has a beginning, a moment when they first put pencil to paper or brush to canvas and they set out to capture their subject. Mine was set by my dad when he challenged myself and my brother to draw, of all things, the leg of a chair. 30 minutes later, our drawings complete he looked at mine, called my mother and grandmother in and the response was, okay we have an artist in the family! I titled my first drawing ‘Leg of chair’ strangely enough, signed Brian Healy 1972 (for sale 10p).

Many years have passed since and my technique has somewhat improved along with a more varied subject choice. After leaving school I studied at The National College of Art after which most of my career has been centred around graphic design and signage.

For the last 8 years I have been teaching art in Summerhill, County Meath. The group consists of approx. 10 people, all eager to learn and improve. Many of the group have been coming to me since day one and the most satisfying thing for me is to see their progression from that initial class to present day. Whilst the levels of ability vary in any given group the core principles remain the same. The importance of ensuring your chosen subject ‘remains’ on the canvas from the start by using grids, the understanding that what you are actually trying to do is capture light and how it affects an object. Deep shadows, mid-tones, and pinpoint highlights! Above all art should be an enjoyable experience, feel free to interpret as you wish without the shackles of trying to be ‘photo’ perfect.
Leg of chair’ is still for sale. Brian Healy. aged 7. (10p)!

Commissions accepted. Watercolour, Acrylic, Oil. Just send me a photo of your preferred scene or portrait.

Henry, Terence 

Zero biographical information so far despite extensive enquiries with Arts bodies, museums and on various message boards. The artist must have been active in the 1940/50 period as this is when his paintings appeared on postcards published by the Scholastic Production Co., Belfast.

Terence Henry watercolour - Copy

Irish coastal view with blue hills beyond”  watercolour, sold for £50.00 on eBay a couple of months ago. It’s clearly the same painting as that used for the postcard – see insert – which proves that one/some of the original paintings supplied to the Scholastic Production Co. have survived.

Herbert, Mary Balfour (1817 – 1893) 

The Herbert family owned the Muckross Estate in Killarney, County Kerry from 1670 and accrued most of their vast wealth from copper mining on the Muckross peninsula.
While travelling in Europe, Henry John Herbert met and fell in love with Scottish heiress Mary Balfour. They married in 1837, when Mary was twenty, and they moved back to the Muckross Estate. They first lived at Torc Cottage, under the shadow of the waterfall – since demolished. Mary brought a large dowry to the marriage and so it was with ease that they decided to start work on their new dream home in 1839 and in 1843 Muckross House was ready to move into.
Having had no formal art education apart from drawing lessons in childhood, Mary became an accomplished water-colourist and many examples of her work are on show in the house.
