Rafferty, Eddie ARUA

When Eddie Rafferty left school he became a leather worker with the Gilford (Co.Down) firm of Shane Wright, who made saddles, handbags and belts. At the same time he attended art classes at night at Lurgan Technical College. Here me met the artist Neil Shawcross who was so impressed by his work that he encouraged him to paint more and more. Eventually this led him onto a place at Belfast College of Art where he received an Honours degree in printmaking and drawing…..more to follow

Rafter, Mike


I am a self-taught painter living in Castletown, County Laois. My educational and work background is in electronics and computing though I have always been fascinated by art. For as long as I can remember, drawing and painting have been part of my life. Though I am primarily self-taught I am always trying to improve my craft by participating in workshops given by leading artists.

I work with oils, acrylics & watercolours. My favourite medium is oil paint which, in my opinion, offers a versatility that cannot be matched by any other medium.

Please get in touch if you are interested in commissioning a painting.

Ridgeway, Ken

Painting for me has been a life long hobby and love. I had a busy work life and found that painting was a great way to relax. Ten years ago I decided to take the the next step and did a 2 year painting course with artist John Dinan in his studio in Mayo. This involved all techniques and styles ending with an exhibition in Cong art gallery. I have displayed on Merrion Sq. and St.Stephen’s Green, where I was quite successful, as well as local exhibitions.

I moved to Greystones from Killester in Dublin six years ago. I look for any subject that suggests an interesting painting to me, although that might not work out all the time!
Recently the seashore in Greystones has become an inspiration for me. It changes every day with the tides and weather. I mostly work in acrylics, but I use oils and watercolour if the subject suggests a different painting medium.

Roche, Marie


An emerging abstract artist originally from Cork but now based in Dublin. Working as a nurse for more than seven years she recently became interested in cultivating her artistic talent. She held her first solo art exhibition in July 2017 entitled ‘Colourful Moments – Embracing Change’ which was a resounding success. Her theme for that exhibition was acrylic abstract flowers, ranging from A2-A5 in size, all mounted and framed. She recently took part in the People’s Art on St. Stephen’s Green which she found very positive and motivating as an up and coming artist. Marie is in her final year of completing a diploma in Art Psychotherapy – Person Centered Approach which has opened many doors to allow her to express herself through art without the pressure of performance and outcome.

Ryan, Jurga (1971)  

Jurga’s journey began with a foundation of creativity in Kaunas, Lithuania. An offspring of artists herself, the appreciation for art served to fuel a desire to create and be part of it in its many forms. Training in Landscape design, it became apparent she saw things from the ground up and life itself would become a focal point in her artistry.
Small furry creatures and life on a canvas would not be the only creating she does. A mother of four children she now resides in Ireland, working and creating in Thurles, Co. Tipperary taking in views of life many only glance at. A growing skill to capture things we wish we could stop and breath in, her work gives due to the moments passing and the objects within them. There is no doubt Life keeps her busy as she continues to aim for the realistic style in her oil works. Painting since 2012, the object of her work is second to the feeling she loves to share and evoke in each piece. Often the unique and whimsical lines of life lead to finding light we know is there but just didn’t realise how much we see it.
Working with watercolours as well, she enjoys letting water exhibit its nature and flow. Preferring not to interfere with this, her work allows a perspective and an enjoyment for letting things be just what they are. A fan of the curvy, the wobbles and the fun form, there is no doubt she will one day paint an entire world of things that continue to make others smile.

Ryan, Shelia

I am an Irish American, of an Irish born mother originally from Dublin. I moved to Dublin in my late teens and have been living here for the past 31 years.

I have been making art with different mediums since my early teens. When my children were old enough, I finally got to go to DIT Art College when I turned 40 and then got a B.A. degree in Fine Art. Many of my paintings are of Megalithic tombs/monuments or Irish landscapes. As a hobby, I have also made Applique art, which is using fabrics of different shapes and sewing them together on a larger piece.
