The Dunbrody.

(48c stamp issued to commemorate the Cutty Sark Tall Ships Race Waterford 2005)

This ship is a replica of the original Dunbrody built in Quebec in 1845. She was built as a cargo vessel and also fitted with bunks to help accommodate Irish families seeking a new life away from the famine in the late 1840’s. The replica ship is moored in New Ross and is open to visitors throughout the year. Built from wood, she is 176 feet long and has a sail area of over 10,000 square feet.

EIRCOM CALLCARD

During her construction, I was commissioned by the Jeanie Johnston Project chairman to paint the ship as I imagined it would look when completed.

The completed painting was subsequently used to produce the Eircom callcard shown above.

Jeanie Johnson

On the left is an example of a private commission I received to paint the Jeanie Johnston as it would have looked on one of her voyages to the new world. The sky ahead of the ship is bright and contrasts with the dark sky behind the ship. This symbolises the dark times left behind and the hopes of a better future for the weary passengers aboard.

(Private collection, Ireland.)
