Grace Cunningham is an Irish artist, specialising in canine and equine art as well as other animal portraiture. Born in Galway City on the west coast of Ireland, situated along the Wild Atlantic Way, her surroundings and love of nature is a major influence on the paintings she produces. Her paintings have been exhibited throughout Ireland and sought after by a wide audience of art collectors both in her native Ireland and abroad.




Grace’s fine art studies began at the Burren College of Art Co. Clare and from there she studied at Limerick School of Art and Design and completed her studies in her home town at Cluain Mhuire, GMIT's Centre for Creative Arts in Galway City.




After completing her education, Grace's love of art brought about a desire to teach others and set up her own school of art in Salthill Galway named 'The Painting Studio' where she continues to teach adult painting classes and workshops.




When she is not teaching, Grace spends her time creating her own work, painting animals, a self indulgent passion. Because of her deep understanding and love for her subject she captures the animals individual personality and their soft sympathetic expression. Her paintings have a serene, peaceful quality with a classical look as she works in chiaroscuro, going from light to dark, generating an atmosphere by creating depth and shadows. While looking for as much detail as possible, she retains a soft realistic, painterly style, well suited to the depiction of the wonderful animals she paints.




Graces' work has been described as calming, visually moving, majestic, inspiring and a wonderment of canine and equestrian art.

In June 2018, The Grace Cunningham Fine Art Gallery opened at 7 Quay Lane Galway City. Located on the first floor 'Cobwebs Antique and Fine Jewellery' overlooking Galways historic Spanish Arch, the gallery exhibits exclusively the paintings and fine art prints of artist Grace Cunningham.
