Our Story

The Canvas Works was founded in 2007 by Patrick Ryan. We're proud to be going stronger than ever in 2024.

"In our digital world, there's still a vital place for real-world printed photos that connect us to the people and places we love. It's my pleasure and privilege to print the memories of your most meaningful moments. Thank you for supporting us."

Patrick Ryan, Founder of The Canvas Works

 I’m often asked how and why I set up The Canvas Works. After graduating from Law School in TCD, I went into the advertising industry but by 2006 I’d had enough of the rat race and moved to the Ibizian countryside with my now wife, Lynne. We developed the business out there and moved back to Ireland in late 2007 where we settled in Kinsale, County Cork. 

Although we’re small, our approach to canvas printing is to invest heavily in leading-class technology to deliver an on-line experience that matches or surpasses the big international players. Supporting an Irish on-line canvas printing business should never mean settling for less. I believe our canvas prints and framed prints match or surpass our international competitors but we also offfer a level of personal service they simply cannot provide.

I’m very fortunate to have a dedicated team around me who are as passionate as I am about printing our customers' photos on canvas and developing the business sustainably. To learn more about our business and canvas prints, you can reach out to us anytime in all the usual ways or drop into our gallery in Kinsale. We’re open all year round, although hours vary depending on the season.

Thanks for reading,

Patrick Ryan, Founder, The Canvas Works
