paintings by Irish Artist

Philip Watkin

“All men dream: but not equally.
Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds
wake in the day to find that it was vanity:
but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men,
for they may act their dreams with open eyes, to make it possible….”

T. E. Lawrence

About the Artist

A brief description of who I am. Leaving School in 1982 I was accepted in both the Dublin Art Colleges,: Dún Laoghaire Institute of Art, Design and Technology and The National College of Art and Design. I attended the National College. Being hungry to get into the real world I started in advertising in Dublin, where I started as a visualisation and layout artist, in Adsell Advertising agency and later moved to the Birchill Company and other Graphic Studios in Dublin.
Having worked for some years in various design fields from advertising agencies and graphic design studios to entrepreneurial projects such as property developments and interior design. I have successfully contributed my design skills to many projects from concept stage through to completion.
To mention a few of these projects: Designer in Charge for the Seanachie Irish Pub in Nashville Tennessee, Graphic consultant for interior design project in Hong Kong, Creative director for Celtic Concepts,
In the late 1980’s and 1990’s I have held many solo art exhibtions, both here at home and in the USA.
