Titanic Art

One of the things that really inspired me to devote my attention to painting Titanic was the realisation that if I had been standing at the window in my cottage in Groomsport on 2nd April 1912 I could have seen the great ship steam by three times! First, as she emerged from Belfast Lough to complete her sea trials, then on her return to Belfast later in the day and thirdly as she finally departed for Southampton.
My painting shows Titanic passing The Point at Groomsport as she heads out into the Irish Sea.

Original painting - Sold

My Titanic paintings show the building, fitting out, launch and sea trials of the great White Star liner - her Belfast beginnings. I live in Groomsport, a seaside village at the mouth of Belfast Lough and these paintings celebrate the positive and optimistic period of Titanic's life here at home, before she departed our shores for Southampton, Chebourg, Cobh and off into the Atlantic... A rose tinted view maybe, but it's the part of her story that interests me most and I'm passionate about showing that she's so much more than just the ship that sank!
