Carol Graham is one of the most successful painters of her generation working in Ulster. She is well known as a portraitist, but in a sense the true subject matter of her work is light.
— S. B. Kennedy - Former Head of Art at Ulster Museum Belfast.


Throughout her career Carol has received regular commissions to create portraits of some of the leading figures from public life, society, sport and  the entertainment world in Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland.

The Irish artist’s gift as a portraitist is well recognised and she has undertaken commissions on behalf of institutions such as the Ulster Museum, Trinity College Dublin, the Northern Ireland Assembly and Windsor Castle.

Her sitters have included two presidents of Ireland, the internationally renowned flautist Sir James Galway and Lord Eames, Archbishop of Armagh.

Contact Carol and she will be happy to discuss any potential commission with you. Prices can be found here
