Born in Wexford, Jimmy Lawlor now lives and works in Mayo. Initially working in the field of Illustration, Jimmy opted to devote all of his time to a career in fine art painting in the late 1990s. He has since exhibited extensively in galleries throughout Ireland and had many images published alongside magazine articles and advertisements.
Jimmy's work derives its inspiration from his pastoral surroundings. He presents familiar scenes of rural Ireland: the people, towns, landscapes and animals, but with a humorous twist; often illustrating literal transcriptions of colloquial expressions.
