Whimsy by Nature
Welcome to the Whimsical World of Thomas Joseph, home of the iconic Celtic gift range. For over 18 years, the silly sheep have been migrating from their green pastures in Ireland, to the far corners of the world, taking with them a simple Irish charm. The endearing paintings are heavily influenced by the mountainous landscapes of Ireland and Scotland, and the activities of the local farm life. The delightful imagery, coupled with the playful puns always raises a smile, so have a browse through our huge selection of paintings and products, and find that perfect funny gift.

The paintings of “The Whimsical World of Thomas Joseph” were originally created by Carrickfergus artist Tom Stephenson, as he travelled the back roads of Ireland with his job as a delivery driver. Initially, Tom sold his prints into the Irish market from the back of his car, but a new direction was found when he started working with Morrigan Ltd in 2000. Morrigan Ltd helped introduce Thomas Joseph to the UK market, and the range has since become extremely popular with all ages.
Tom continues to paint out of his own gallery/gift shop, in the small coastal town of Carrickfergus, Northern Ireland, and it’s there, in ‘The Courtyard Gallery’, that you’ll find both Tom and his wonderful, distinctive artwork. Although the original Whimsical World of Thomas Joseph paintings can be illusive, a visit is always worthwhile for devotees.
