Art and photography, passions of mine for most of my life. Back in the 1970s, I was involved with the Mullingar Camera Club. It was then that I discovered a drive to host annual exhibitions in Mullingar each year. The pressure of making a living in the latter years pushed me into putting my passion for art to one side.
You know, this did not stop me from collecting art throughout the years and just storing them away. Jack B Yeats has influenced my love for art. Although I’m unable to acquire his paintings, I have lately managed to acquire a painting by his father John Butler Yeats, and add it to my collection. In early 2020, and with the news of covid hitting our shores, my passion for art has been re-ignited, so, I decided to open an Art Gallery at my home, I am glad to say Mo Phaisean was born.
