Billy Austin

Billy Austin is an 81 year old self-taught Watercolour Artist from Tandragee. In his early years, when appointed Advertising Director of the Morton Newspaper Group, he practiced his artistic skills by sketching a series of local characters for the seven weekly papers. His love of the Irish Landscape too has always fascinated him and his paintings are featured in homes throughout England, America, France, Italy, Germany and Switzerland. He has held several Exhibitions over the years and in recent times he has become recognised as one of Ireland’s top Portrait painters. An on-line Exhibition of his work is currently being featured on the Millennium Court Arts Centre Site
