Walter Bernardini

Marina, Royal Irish YC, Dun Laoghaire

Walter Bernardini had a long career in advertising. Born and brought up in Glasgow, he started work there at the age of 15. His natural artistic ability together with a keen sense of creativity enabled him to produce much award winning work. He moved to Dublin in 1963, and in 1966 was invited to form a graphic design consultancy as its principal designer and illustrator.

Now retired, he can devote more time to the personal painting and drawing that took a back seat during his career. He works in watercolour, gouache, acrylics, pastels and oils.

His work has been exhibited at Dublin’s Royal Hibernian Academy and is held in many private and corporate collections.
