Philip Brennan is a native of County Clare. He has been exhibiting his work since the late ‘seventies, the current exhibition being his 23rd solo show. He works mainly in watercolour, but also in other media. His work covers a wide range of subjects, including landscape, seascape, flora and fauna, historical themes, music-associated ideas, people and interpretive work based on all of the above. He is strongly influenced by his background as an active naturalist, but his roots in his native county are perhaps his greatest influence. His work is very much based on field-sketching and he has pursued this approach at home and on wildlife expeditions in Senegal and Canada.
