Artist's Description

The armchair historian in me gets goosebumps whenever I visit a place like Dun Aengus (or Dun Aonghasa). One of the reasons I went to the Aran Islands at all was that I had read about the dramatic ring forts that are one of the big draws for tourist to the small islands near Galway.

About Mark E Tisdale

Mark E Tisdale

Life is full of happy surprises. After just over a decade working in the 9 to 5 cube world, I threw caution to the wind to follow my dreams of being a full time visual artist.
