My name is Ian Delaney and I am an Irish artist based in Dublin. I am self taught with no formal artistic education other than art in secondary school. I primarily love working with acrylic paint due to the sharpness and vividness of colour but have worked with oils too. Having spent my teenage years painting I was advised to turn professional but declined at the time and stopped painting for over 17 years.
In 2011 my artistic journey began again as I picked up a long buried desire and talent. Having enjoyed just being back amongst my paints and brushes again my wife encouraged me to show my paintings to others so I plucked up the courage to exhibit on the peoples art in St Stephen Green.
It has grown from there and I look forward to what the future holds as I strive to get better and better.
