Yeaman, William (-2008)

Northern Irish landscape artist.

A memorial at the Lime Kiln, Ballintoy Harbour carries this testimonial:

This plaque is dedicated to the fond memory of William Yeaman the artist who used to paint in this spot.

William will always be remembered not only for his fine paintings, but also for his generosity of spirit. He had a kind word or deed for all who met him.

Some people are so special of character that when they pass, they leave a distinct gap in the fabric of our lives. William Yeaman was such a man.

This jovial, genuine and good man will live on in the minds of all his friends.

We will always sense his spirit with us as we take time to enjoy the wonderful landscapes all around us that William loved to paint.

Yourell, Jason (1976)

I am an Artist born and raised in the heart of Dublin. My father studied art in NCAD, and my mother wrote poetry and short stories in her spare time. Artistic expression was something that was propagated in me from a very early age.

I love to capture dramatic light, colour, and trying to catch a moment in time. The inspiration for me comes from ideas that give you that quiet moment of calm. Or the ones that make the hairs on your arms stand on end. I try to take that concept and translate that into a finished piece.

I have been an art teacher, worked in TV and film, animation and design. Everything I do in my professional life stems from a place of artistic fascination and the challenge of trying to master something new.

I am happy to undertake commissions and can be contacted via the link below.
