Curriculum Vitae and Published Articles

Harry Foy

The impressionistic paintings of Harry Foy are deeply inspired by his upbringing. From an early age with holidays in the west of Ireland Harry was exposed to the richness of the Irish landscape where his father would sketch and photograph subjects later to be worked into finished oil paintings. From these early beginnings Harry was taught to see the nature around him and to appreciate a loose and impressionistic style of painting.

Continuously Harry finds himself searching for something deeper in his art and by exploring, experimenting, developing and applying a curious mind along with sheer determination he has been able to push the boundaries of his work.

In late 2016 he spent some time exploring and painting in Queensland Australia. There he enjoyed searching for different kinds of subject matter, and believes it is always beneficial to try new ideas and subjects.

Over the past number of years as well as in his local area he has also painted in the west of Ireland, France, Italy and Hungary. He finds inspiration from many local artists as well as the post impressionist painters of the late 18 and early 1900's.
