Pat Hourican has been painting since he was eight years of age. He started as a landscape artist and was initially heavily influenced by such Northern artists as Cecil McGuire and Paul Henry painters of the landscape of Connemara and the West of Ireland, a location that Pat finds inspirational to this day.
Over the years Pat has expanded his repertoire of subjects to include portraits and still lives. He works primarily through the media of oils and water colour and he also teaches an Introduction to Watercolour Painting in Longford.
Pat is very much in demand as an artist of prominent and picturesque sites in Longford and the surrounding counties of Leitrim and Roscommon.
