BIOGRAPHY I originally trained as a graphic designer and for the past 17 or so years I have worked as a secondary school art and design teacher. During this time I have always had an urge to create, splitting my spare time between producing artwork and writing and performing music in various bands. When painting I work mainly in mixed media and focus on Welsh landscapes and seascapes. I’ve always been drawn to the Welsh coast and open spaces, spendingRead More

BIOGRAPHY Creating art that evokes that sense of place. I have always been awed by the wonders of the natural world, and it is the expression of this wonder that inspires me. I walk in our beautiful Carmarthenshire landscape most days, and even on repeated routes, it’s never the same twice. Mother Nature provides incredible inspiration every day. How is it, that something as simple as the unfurling of a leaf, the sunlight filtering through seawater, or the wind scuddingRead More

BIOGRAPHY I’m driven by a deep love of the landscape here in Gwynedd and a real need to record its many moods and climactic changes.  I love trying to capture the sun on a newly cut hayfield, the skeletal trees of winter, or the olive greens of a turbulent sea.  I sketch outdoors in all weathers and seasons, making careful notes of any nuance that a simple drawing may not have captured, before transposing them onto canvas.  Working outside reminds me I’mRead More

BIOGRAPHY I was born in Aberystwyth and live in the nearby small hamlet of Cefnllwyd. I learned the fundamentals of my clay work in evening classes at the Aberystwyth Arts Centre. Then, I set about turning a hobby into a business. Essentially a self-taught sculptor, this has helped me learn about the processes and quality of my work in a very individual way. My work is produced in a small garden studio at my home in Bontgoch in the foothillsRead More

BIOGRAPHY I grew up in Talybont, Aberystwyth. I currently live in Cardiff working as an accountant. Being creative has always been a big part of my life, despite never having studied art beyond school I have continued to experiment with a variety of methods. I started making lino prints after attending an evening class at Cardiff Met art college. Rural environments are at the heart of my work, largely inspired by the West Wales surroundings. The images are formed inRead More

BIOGRAPHY Originally from Tregaron, I studied at Carmarthen School of Art, and then completed a Fine Art degree at UWIC, specialising in printmaking. I am primarily a Printmaker but use several different techniques in my work including charcoal drawing, oil painting and mixed media. Although my themes vary, the influence of my strong Welsh heritage is paramount. I depict the Welsh people of rural Ceredigion, male voice choirs and rugby. I love producing the work, and am always pleased whenRead More

BIOGRAPHY I am a contemporary artist artist working from Aberystwyth and from Provence in the south of France. My primary interest is in portrait and figure figurative.  I aim to express honestly the thoughts and feeling of the sitter, concentrating on composition, draughtsmanship, close observation and subtle use of colour. I also enjoy painting the everyday things that surround us, exploring in particular the effect of colour, light, shadow and space, and the relationship of the objects on another :Read More

It was in this group that I had the opportunity to learn from Keith Shone, Philip Snow, David Woodford, Kyffin Williams, and Jeremy Yates, as well as amateur artist Richard Watson who organised the group.
