Among the effects of a global pandemic, it seems, is the refocusing of the global lens on the importance of those people and places in all our lives that perhaps were being overlooked in favour of work and other things. Those cherished moments with grandparents, have, now, never been so important as we find ourselves keeping them at arms length for their own safety. Hopefully soon, we will all get to hug and spend time with each other in the ways we previously took for granted.
Aideen Monaghan, an artist from the West of Ireland, paints these snapshots in time – thus providing the kind of artwork that becomes of archival importance – what people did, what people wore and how people interacted etc.  This particular snapshot ‘Grandad’ (full personal title of Grandad & Freya), highlights the beauty and preciousness of those moments in time.

Aideen Monaghan is an accomplished and award winning artist and art teacher whose work has been exhibited and sold both nationally and internationally.

Your Shipping Choices Explained

NOTE: Due to Covid 19 areas are experiencing delays and some restrictions on deliveries – please enquire directly with us if you are concerned. 

We generally use the postal service here in Ireland, called An Post. It is very reliable and we take the utmost care in packing all our pieces professionally to ensure that have the very best chance of arriving safely in their destination.  This option would be at your own risk.

We can also offer you our own cargo insurance at a reasonable price – weight and piece dependent. Please enquire with us for this option. (This will also be packed by us and carried by An Post as above)

Taking into account the delicate nature and cost of your purchase, if you would prefer it travel in a specialized and insured Art Box with an outside Art Handler, then this can be arranged.  For paintings up to and including the size 120cm x 100 cm – prices with an insured professional courier, range from €75 – all the way up to €475 (size and location dependent) NOTE: This option will take considerably longer as we will have to outsource it and get quotes for you before we proceed.

For paintings or items falling outside of those largest dimensions then a further discussion is required – as it may need to have a bespoke crate to be built for it and a further cost will apply.
