Roger O’Reilly is a multi-award winning author and artist who has worked as an illustrator and storyboard artist for advertisements, periodicals, and productions such as the TV series ‘Vikings’ among others. In 2017, he packed in the commercial work to pursue his true calling of sketching and illustrating the landmarks and landscapes of these islands. His bestseller, Lighthouses of Ireland, which won the 2018 Irish published book of the year award is now in its seventh print run.

A painting holiday spent among Cornwall’s beaches and coves and walking the cliffs at nearby Lizard Point lighthouse inspired a new project which before you knew it, had expanded to include all of Britain. He hasn’t looked back!

Legendary Lighthouses of Britain, his new illustrated volume featuring over 100 lighthouses in England Scotland, Wales and the islands will be published by Watkins Press in spring 2024.
