Artist | Professional | Varied
I have been working as an artist writer since the 60’s. Since then I have worked in many styles and on many subjects but am best know for my Celtic work, Thin Lizzy Album covers and after too many years I am getting recognition as creator of the Che icon, yeah the one on the t-shirts, cups and posters, used all over the world.
Only in the last year have I started to print my own work and on Etsy I am starting with collections of my Celtic Art and Thin Lizzy Artwork. This will changing as I add more works to my store.
My Celtic art style, you can see influence of greats like, Alfons Mucha, Gustav Klimt and Houkasai. I started my Celtic art at a time when there was no known market for Celtic art and no one was doing it. My passion for Celtic art came from my own studies of ancient Irish history and Mythology at a time when unfortunately so much of this proud history was being destroyed and forgotten. But with inspiration from ‘The Book Of Kells’, our Irish heritage and the great masters before me I developed my own distinct style, which in turn has become one of the foundations of the Celtic art movement.
In my Thin Lizzy Art the influences of more comic based artist can be seen, like Jack Kirby, Moebious, Hogarth and Roger Dean. I was very fortunate to have a friend in Phillip Lynott ( Thin Lizzy Frontman) who was inspirational and incredibly supportive of my Artwork for the band.
My work has been shown all over the world for example the Tate Gallery London, The Whitney Museum, New York, The Kunsthalle, Vienna and many others.
Currently I’m in the middle of a series of large canvas works reflecting the attack on 9.11, titled ‘Lament for the Fallen’ which are to be exhibited across the USA.
I have three great kids who are all arty in one form or another and I share my life with two twin kittens who like when I paint fast and furious –as I do for the 9/11 series and who are bored stiff when I draw and paint at a more leisurely pace. I live a quiet, gentle life and live on the beach just outside of Dublin. I walk and cycle every day and I work on my art every day too.
Hi all,

I'm back after a long absence! I'm going to be putting up a load of my work, mainly Celtic art, over the next while, I hope you enjoy!

Your artwork is truly magnificent. Sadly Irish mythology isn't really well-mown in our culture though I grew really interested in all the legends about Finna through your art.

From one Irish Artist to another, I have been a huge admirer for your work since I was 7. I then had the pleasure of selling your art in Forbidden Planet on the Dublin Quays :)

TY very much for your inspirational and amazing iconic work

Delighted to have found that you have an (active!) DA account - you have been a great inspiration for me ever since I opened The Silver Arm and Conquests when I was barely able to hold a pencil.

You're art is lovely Jim I love it! You're twist of Nouveau with Celtic symbols and myth is astounding. I can see how you've been a rather successful artist and I'm happy to see you on DA! I hope you will continue to put up art on here because I'm sure there's plenty of people that would love to see it here. Thank you! :heart:
