My name is Derek Merangh. I was born and raised in Galway, Ireland. I am currently residing in the Greater Toronto Area, Canada and I am mostly a self taught artist who has been painting since a young child. I have participated in workshops by renowned artists over the years to help develop my skills as an oil painter. I do have a love for oil painting and I tend to gravitate towards Irish and Canadian land and cityscapes. My paintings have been displayed in many local gallery type venues over the years.
