Josh and Kathryn Brolin with portrait of James Joyce and Nora Barnacle

Painting James and Nora for Josh and Kathryn

With this commissioned portrait, one passionate and complex couple reflects another.


On the wall: James Joyce and Nora Barnacle – a couple borne of a love-at-first-sight connection, the details of which are embedded in Ulysses.

In the home: Actor Josh and fashion designer Kathryn Brolin, a similarly charming pair and two of my most treasured collectors.

It was an honour and delight to paint this portrait. It makes sense on so many levels. Thank you Josh and Kathryn.
