Paul Guilfoyle was born in Dublin in 1950. He enjoyed holidaying along the west coast of Ireland as a young person, savouring the beautiful unspoilt nature of the Irish landscape and coastline. As an artist, Paul has sought to evoke this beauty on canvas in his depictions of Donegal, Kerry and Connemara.

His eye for capturing moving light and the way it interacts with the environment has lent him a unique and highly identifiable style. His work is represented in many major collections throughout Ireland, Europe and the United States.
