Irish Paintings, Prints & Gifts


Brigid Shelly

Delighted to be known as the “Cow Painter”, Brigid has been specialising in painting this wonderful animal for over twenty years.

Why Cows?

“Part of it is their curiosity and quirkiness that makes them a good subject to paint but also the fact that they are and always have been an integral part of the Irish landscape”.

“In ancient Ireland a man’s wealth was based on how many cows he had. They have always been there, sustaining us and that is part of the reason I am paying homage to this great animal on canvas”.
