“I have enjoyed Rod's work for many years now firstly as a collector and later as an art dealer and gallery owner. Rod is one of the major talents currently painting in Ireland. He has a truly unique and individual way of capturing the landscape around him, not just in subject but is his rich deep painting style and use of colour in a way only Rod can. If you are an established collector or just starting out I would not hesitate to recommend Rod's work to you. If near Avoca make sure you go to the studio, Rod always has a superb range of works there.”
Ian Campbell, Owner, William Street Gallery, Kilkenny, Ireland
“...my wife and I love the paintings and they are a wonderful addition to our collection.True to your word I was able to track their delivery progress via the Internet and indeed I was very impressed with the customized wooden box you built to ensure their safe passage from Ireland to Canada. Incidentally if you ever decide to get out of the painting business you might consider a career in custom cabinet making. Just joking Rod never stop painting. All the best and I look forward to visiting the gallery again in the near future."
Derek Downes, Ontario, Canada
"On a return visit to Ireland we saw one of Rod's paintings in a hotel, which caught our eye. Back in Hong Kong we searched up Rod's website and on-line gallery, and after a quick & efficient exchange of emails we located the picture 'Hay Bales Pink Clouds'. Rod shipped the artwork to Hong Kong where it arrived in perfect condition. We are still enjoying the picture to this day. I fully recommend Rod's website as source quality artwork, supported by excellent service. Very much appreciated."

“Rod Coyne is a fantastic Irish landscape artist, fully and totally dedicated to his craft.
I urge you to look at his website and buy some art, you will never regret it and will probably be making a very sound investment.”
Bernard Allum, U.K.
“Rod is an exceptionally talented artist. A print of perhaps my favourite of all his paintings has pride of place in my home where it invariably receives positive comment from guests. Rod's studio in Avoca is a veritable Aladdin's Cave of stunning and unique art and always well worth a visit.”
