Original Paintings for Sale or why not commission your own unique artwork based on your photos or imagination !
It is very simple to commission a painting or portrait of a loved one or of your pet, a painting of your favourite place or home or building or holiday memory. Your own unique painting. Wedding paintings and paintings of special moments. Children portraits and a portrait of yourself are popular gifts for someone close, all from your photos. With your guidance to colours, I can transform a black and white photo into a full colour oil painting.
Belfast Northern Ireland born U.K. artist Michael McEvoy based in Nottingham. I studied art at Belfast School of Art and at Manchester and Nottingham. I was the first art and design technician in the United Kingdom for the City Technology Colleges at The Djanogly C.T.C college.
While an accomplished artist in etching and engraving, acrylic and water colour painting and wood carving. I have painted in oils for several years. My subject matter mainly concentrates on figurative art or portraits. Often relating to experiences from life or from memories of my childhood’s whimsical imagination. They all have a story to unfold.
I have exhibited in the North and Midlands England and Northern Ireland. Painting private commissions in England, Ireland, Scotland, U.S.A. Canada and China.
My art does not seek to shock, affront, distort, deconstruct, or dissolve. It seeks only to invite you to share my world. The world you may enter when you find a forgotten and faded photograph at the back of a drawer. Or hear an old tune on the radio. Or a home town accent when you are far from home. Distant memories, happy days, a coffee on the pier.
