Gerry Halpin 2015-2019

MAFA President 2015-2019

Gerry Halpin spent the earlier part of his career as a teacher but has been painting professionally since 1990. Gerry’s work reflects a wide range of interests from landscape to abstraction. He also likes to work outdoors and frequently allows elements of the landscape and ground textures to direct his abstract paintings. At times he has returned to realism and his work reflects his fascination for textures: old stone walls, ancient pathways and natural patterns.

In 2010 he was awarded an MBE for services to charity and art. He was awarded the Menena Joy Schwabe Memorial Award for Outstanding Painter by the Royal Institute of Oil Painters in 2015. Gerry has had many solo exhibitions and has exhibited at that group exhibition throughout the UK.
