O’Kennedy, Leon (1896 – 1976) 

Leon O’Kennedy was born in New York but was brought back to Ireland by his parents, Irish emigrants, in 1901 when he was 5 years of age. His mother died in a TB sanatorium, part of the Strokestown Workhouse, Co.Roscommon in 1907, and his father returned to the USA in 1910. However, when his father sent for the children a few years later Leon opted to remain in Ireland and was adopted by an Uncle & Aunt in Elphin, Co.Roscommon.
He went on to win a scholarship to University College Galway later becoming a teacher. Settling first in Castlepollard, and later in Mullingar where he continued teaching until the 1950’s when he moved to Blackrock, Co.Dublin.

Working mainly in watercolour and in later years, oils, he painted all over the country but with a special love for Connemara and the South West. His earliest known paintings date from 1947 and the most recent to 1973. He seems to have been at his busiest in the 1950s and also painted some Italian scenes in 1949.
He is reputed to have exhibited in Ireland and the UK but there no record of this. Several reliable sources have referenced him selling his paintings door to door and he seems to have also undertaken commissions – see the bungalow below. It must surely have been a commission, and possibly one of his least interesting works to appear for sale – currently (July 2020) available on eBay for an incredible £390 – overpriced despite the artist doing his best to make the best of an uninspiring subject!

O’Neill, Brian


Dublin based artist Brian O’Neill has a background in construction spanning 38 years. Specialising in the conservation of Ireland’s medieval structures through to the Georgian architecture which defines Dublin, Brian gained a great knowledge and appreciation for our built heritage. It is this passion for historical architecture that influences much of Brian’s art. As a mature student he completed a four year joint degree course in History of Art & Design and Ceramic Design, at Dublin’s National College of Art & Design, in 2015. Following a successful Degree show Brian set up his Dublin based studio where he works on his ceramic sculptural work, watercolour and acrylic paintings. Brian has developed a very distinctive style in his ceramic work, producing a series of ceramic sculptures of Dublin’s Victorian pubs. His ceramic sculptures have been based on rough sketches and photographs. However, recently Brian has produced wonderful, highly detailed watercolours of the structures he is working on and these paintings are then used as a template for his ceramic works. The ceramic works can be bought alongside the watercolour as a set or as individual pieces. Brian’s works have been bought by many private collectors, Businesses and the Office of Public Works for the State art collection.

O’Sullivan, John


I am a self-taught artist, working mainly in acrylics, but occasionally in oils. I paint for pleasure and relaxation; I created my website as a way of cataloguing my work. I am influenced by photography, pop art and the intense colour of the smartphone-driven world we live in. Unlike writing and other art forms, painting liberates us from the need to make sense: I love that liberation.
