2020 Irish Mythology Calendar On Etsy

Hey guy! I’ve reached my target for Fundit and it won’t be long until I start printing. I’m so excited to announce my etsy page is open for business. Well it was already open… but I um… ahem… hadn’t logged into it since January. The dust has been swept off and it’s ready to sell some calendars. If you want to access my Calendar on Etsy just click here or the Image of the calendar below.

Here are a few examples of what will be in my Calendar. I can’t give away too many spoilers! Send me an email if you have any questions to inkyandthepen@gmail.com.

Floral Watercolours

It has probably been about 4 months since I’ve actually posted anything on this page. I’ve been quite distracted lately, continuously painting and posting on instagram and facebook, but I’ve ignored etsy, this website and other platforms I am meant to be selling work on. I painted these paintings in March as part of an instagram challenge. I think a lot of them would be very good to make into patterns. One thing I am intending to do soon is learn how to make patterns as I am never satisfied with my results. Perhaps there will be a skillshare class I can learn something from. I’ve been accepted into a Graphic Design course in the LYIT in my hometown, I’m not sure if I will get funded yet, so I need to start working on selling my work at galleries and art fairs to ensure I have the money to continue my studies. I have been feeling like procrastinating a lot, but can’t afford to do so any longer. I have a few ideas of how I can make money, but would love to hear any ideas from the rest of you, leave a comment or send me a message if you have any advice.

Below are floral paintings I had a lot of fun making, so check them out and let me know what you think of them. I’ll post my more recent illustrations soon enough to this sight.

365 Days of Paint: 311-330

Finally I am posting onto this website after 2018 has ended and the challenge ended a few weeks ago. The reason I left it so late was because I went through a break up, but couldn’t get my scanner until over a week ago. Now that all the paintings are scanned here they are. I added 20 paintings to this post instead of the usual 10.  Continue reading “365 Days of Paint: 311-330”

Inktober 2018 Part 3

The rest of the paintings for Inktober 2018. I learned a lot during this challenge, but also found that I have much more to learn. I find working with ink to be so exciting, despite the mess I sometimes managed to make. I’m looking forward to doing it again next year.
This week I sent three of my inktober paintings to the Galway Art Centre for their open art exhibition. I am very excited to see how that turns out. I would also like to mention that I will be selling art at a stall at the Creeslough craft fair on Sunday the 25th of November. I’m hoping to sell some of my watercolour and ink paintings, digital prints, doodles and Christmas cards. For more information email me; inkyandthepen@gmail.com!
