Elvin Warwick Simpson


I met Elvin today, at his workshop in Liscolman, between Coleraine and Ballycastle on the North Coast of Ireland. He’s been making pens from the barrels of Bushmills Whiskey, amongst other things.  Guitars, kitchen cabinets, bowls…, not from barrels, though.   He’s a maker of things.


And here’s one of the finished pens.

The Artist

Shot this portrait today of local painter Michael McGuinness, and enjoyed an all too brief but  interesting conversation about portraits and the people in them.  Always a treat to work with artists and other creative people.  Thanks Michael.
