Seumas works full time as a self-employed 3d visualistion artist producing computer generated images for the building industry.
After a 25 year hiatus, Seumas returned to painting in 2014 with an aim to progress and improve as an artist. He is self taught and enjoys painting in oils on canvas and board and looks to represent the natural landscape with this medium.
Born in 1965 in Scotland, his early years spent near Braemar, then Fort William and later near Oban, Argyllshire, he particularly enjoys painting the landscapes of the Scottish Highlands and Islands. After studying Graphic Design in Glasgow Seumas moved to Ireland at the age of 26 in 1992.
He has lived in Cork, Galway and now lives in Ballina, North Tipperary.
Seumas' work as a 3d architectural visualisation artist often takes him up to the Connemara region in the West of Ireland. It is here that he found a landscape with similarities to parts of the Scottish highlands from where he grew up. This was the catalyst to get back to developing his art which had taken a bit of a backseat over the years.
Developing a method to realise what he sees and feels outdoors and putting onto canvas in the studio is the challenge.
Increasingly, Seumas is in awe of the sheer majesty of our Western seaboard and it's many different personalities that reveal themselves prompted by our constantly changing atmospherics.
