Alan Bradshaw - Artist

Born in Belfast in 1936, a discussion with a family friend persuaded him to turn his artistic talents toward a degree in architecture. Following this advice, Bradshaw qualified as an architect from the Architectural Association, London. Throughout his busy professional career, he never lost sight of his first love, painting.
 

Bradshaw's motivation to paint stems from his great love of the natural world and the unique and everchanging nature of the Irish countryside. He paints in oil, watercolor and acrylic.

 

He has held exhibitions all over Ireland and in the United States and his work is found in private collections throughout North America, Europe and further afield.
