Keith W. Thompson

Hi there and welcome,

Old friends and visitors to my previous website will already know a little bit about me. I was born in England, fell in love with my lovely wife Rita and also her homeland of Ireland.

Our two children were brought up there in a charming thatched Irish country pub, quite close to the sea. Quite a change from my previous occupation as a planner of container vessels.

I am a self taught artist heavily influenced by my Dad, a water colourist and artists of the past such as, Edward Seago, Sir William Russell Flint, John Singer Sargent and of course, the great oil impressionist, painter and teacher, Hayward Veal and his Australian fellow countryman, Sir William Dargie.(See Link Page)

I have exhibited and sold both watercolor and oil paintings at the prestigous Dublin Art Galleries, The Oriel and Kennedys, as well as The Royal Hibernian Academy, Dublin. As a result of showing at many Art Exhibitions, many of my paintings are now residing world wide, including the home of a former Irish Prime Minister. Most of my website paintings are shipped to the USA.

The exciting new age of Digital Painting and Collage Art has captured my imagination and now competes for my time alongside my more traditional painting mediums.
