Maritime and mixed genre Artwork in coloured Pen and Ink from the Irish Artist John Baird


Welcome to the Homepage of the well known Donegal Artist John Baird. In these pages you will find many examples of a cross section of my work, from Marine to mixed genre Artwork.

Since i started drawing many years ago i have always put a great emphasis on detail, and specializing in Marine subjects, this i find is what the boat owners want. I enjoy my work and through the years i have perfected it by adding colour and not being afraid to experiment using new techniques. My Arwork has found its way into collections Worldwide but it is really at home that i enjoy the most of my success, especially among the Fishermen ,not only of Ireland, but also Scotland and the well. This Homepage is dedicated to them. and all who put their trust in a self taught Artist. I hope you enjoy viewing my work.        Kind Regards..............John Baird
