Roger O Reilly studied Art at COMAD, Dublin pursuing a career in commercial art. His
work has received numerous awards including the Illustrator of the year 2004, and
appeared in publications worldwide.
In 2005 he took time off to concentrate full time on painting, building on a
reputation already established through exhibitions over the previous six years.
His work has been exhibited in Switzerland, Ireland, Holland and France where he
is represented in the permanent collection of the Musee D’histoire Contemporaine
in Paris.
In recent years he returned to the world of commercial illustration painting the
lighthouses around our shores, which he collected into the bestselling book,
“Lighthouses of Ireland” and which won the An Post Irish Published book of the year
award in 2018.
In 2024 He published “Legendary lighthouses of Britain”, a compendium of over 100
illustrated lighthouses around the shores of Scotland, England and Wales.
The project of painting all thing maritime brought him back to his roots near the tidal
River Boyne and the next project is to explore works on canvas, with a special focus
on the estuarine landscapes of shifting ground, uncovered memories and embracing
of change.
