About the artist
I was born in South Wales, have lived here for most of my life and have made the Valleys my home. From here I have access to the beautiful Brecon Beacon Mountains, the Black Mountains, The Gower coastline, the Pembrokeshire Coast and lots of post-industrial trails and walks that include quarries, old mining towns, steel works and other industrial relics that nature has begun to reclaim. Wales is not short of a castle or two with the remains of the ancient Morlais Castle fifteen minutes walk from my house.
The Welsh weather is famous for its unpredictable nature. Often going from sunshine, to showers, to hail and snow and then blue skies again - all in one day! This is where I use my camera to record what I have found particularly striking about my visits and walks - a particularly stunning light, some huge rolling clouds, shadows and rainbows that my paintbrush could not hope to capture in real time.
I love to sketch out of doors. I record the colours of the landscape, the shape of the hills, the details found in the hedgerows, delicate seed heads and flowers that might otherwise be missed. Back in my home studio I paint small, intimate recollections and impressions of my walks and wanders out of doors using the photographs for visual reference.
The smaller works, mostly in watercolour are the works I offer to you here at an affordable price, but occassionally I offer larger works for sale alongside silver jewellery or ceramics which I also enjoy working with when time and space allows.
I hope you are happy with your purchase, I do my best to photograph the work in daylight so that you have a good impression of the colours and the actual size of the work. If you are unhappy with your purchase for any reason, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
