Launching our 12 new Originals!

What a busy couple of months it’s been in the studio!

Every year, Kathryn paints a collection of new “miniature” original paintings, featuring some of her favourite subjects – little birds, native wildlife, and more…

At the beginning of November, we hosted a gin reception here in Ballydrain to launch 2023’s collection. We were delighted to welcome so many of you to the studio to watch live demos, taste test our Mourne Dew Christmas Gin collaboration, and most importantly, feast your eyes on the new collection of artwork!

Guests in the Kathryn Callaghan Fine Art Studio, stood around a wooden island, watching Kathryn Callaghan demonstrate her painting technique. New original paintings line the walls.

We’re so pleased with the reaction to the new paintings – we even sold one of our favourites on the night, and now three of them already have new homes! If you weren’t able to come down, don’t worry, we’ve been beavering away ever since to get them photographed and online for you to peruse…

Meet The Birds

Always a favourite subject, this peaceful flock was inspired by native visitors to Kathryn’s garden year round: the wintery robin I’m Home with his sprig of mistletoe, the bright-eyed goldfinch Sundown on his bristly thistle, the quirky blackbird Nesting with his beak full of straw, and Reflect, the peaceful robin taking a quiet moment to himself.

All that and more!

Phew – but we’re still working away! A few of you asked us at our launch event if we’d be making this release into prints. To be honest, we weren’t sure, but ever since we’ve had even more questions, and having seen just how much you all love the new collection…

We’re over the moon to announce our newest print collection, comprised of the 2023 Winter Originals, launching from Tuesday 21st November!
