Explore the enchanting world of Ballagh Studio Gallery, an artistic haven by Ros Harvey and Tim Stampton in Inishowen, Ireland’s most northerly peninsula. Established in 1990, the studio showcases their exquisite paintings, prints, and limited edition books on Irish legends. Ros, a Royal Ulster Academy and Pastel Society of Ireland member, specializes in pastels and has won awards globally. Tim, an accomplished wood engraver, etcher, and illustrator, crafts limited edition books published under “Apple and Wave.” Open year-round, the gallery welcomes you with ample parking.

Ros Harvey was brought up in Malin, on the wild Inishowen peninsula in Co. Donegal, Ireland.  Here she paints her most powerful images of high seas, waves, rocks and skies.  Her favourite medium is soft pastels although she uses watercolour, oils and makes mono-prints, etchings on copperplate and linocuts.  Ros is a Member of the Royal Ulster Academy and the Pastel Society of Ireland.  She has held major one-man shows, been selected and nominated for awards in many juried exhibitions and has illustrated 7 books.  Her works are in many Public and Corporate collections.


Tim left Canada to study Art in the UK.  He joined Ros Harvey in 1988 and together they set up Ballagh Studios.  These were a collection of old farm buildings.

Over the years they have re-built and redesigned to accommodate Tim’s collection of antique printing presses, their gallery, and working studios.  Tim has written and illustrated, with wood engravings, many Limited Edition books based on Irish stories and mythology.
