About The Artist - Ronnie Ireland

I was born and raised in Glasgow. Due to long periods of illness during childhood, I found myself retreating into my own imaginative world, through my love of drawing. As I grew up, it became clear that drawing and painting were my passion Finally, a long held ambition was realised when I graduated in Drawing and Painting from Glasgow School of Art.
After Art School, I felt I needed a wider context for my work, so decided to study with The Open University It was hard going as I was teaching art at the time, but it was very useful. I specialised in 20th century arts, with the study of Music, History and Poetry giving a much wider range of reference to my work.
Mainly, my work is for private collectors, often being specific commissions for their home or office. Usually these are Allegories, Portraits or Figure Studies. I have had solo and group shows in Edinburgh, Glasgow, Harrogate and Brighton.
My approach is in many ways traditional, following the methods of the great masters of figure painting At the same time I have always been fascinated by the way the camera captures people in both still and moving images. In my work, I try to combine these two potent sources of inspiration to make intriguing images.
“The narrative is implied, but has to be completed by the viewer…”

Ronnie Ireland - Jazz Singer

I was born into a family of singers - from my father there was opera and the legendary classical singers; from my mother the Hollywood musicals and the show tunes.
Pop and Rock I found for myself.
This broad base has served me well however, as I have enjoyed performing in all of these styles and found their interaction fascinating.Formal voice training followed, with lead roles in opera and international choral performances with the world’s leading conductors and orchestras.
 At the same time, I led my own rock band, writing much of the material. “The Great American Songbook” was always there however and audiences were often surprised to be introduced to standards by Irving Berlin or Duke Ellington in between the rock classics!
Nowadays, I centre on those jazz and swing standards, but am always open to including any song from anywhere that catches my interest.
