About Artist

Barry Britton is an accomplished artist & surfer living on the North West coast of Ireland specialising in pen & inks of traditional music, surf & landscapes in his unique Celtic style.

The images displayed here represent a fraction of the output of this artist over the last 40 years. To see more or to commission some work from the man himself contact him at +353 (0) 86 8728770 by phone or e-mail barrybrittondesign@gmail.com. If you're up in Donegal call into his Britton & Daughters Gallery at the beachfront in Rossnowlagh where you'll see large selection of his work on display along with some his daughter Easkey's. If you're planning a special visit it's best to phone ahead as hours tend to be flexible - if the "Gone Surfin" sign is up you're out of luck but if it's not on show just tap on the window with the big etched wave to the left of the door.
