Orignally from Cork in the Republic of Ireland, Ian now lives and works in Fife.

Ian’s fun, quirky depictions of our four-legged friends are ideal for any dog lover, but you will have to come down this evening if you want to   snap one up! 
Places are still available for this gallery event but remember you have to either email your name and address to or give us a ring at the gallery on 0131 225 6257 if you would like to be added!
