Gareth Lloyd-Hughes


I was born and raised in Maentwrog, near Blaenau Ffestiniog in 1952.

The village was surrounded by woodland and forest steeped in Welsh history and legend. Those early years walking in the woods and exploring the landscape have stayed with me to this day.

Painting has always been part of my life and I have exhibited at various galleries and venues but after retiring from the National Library of Wales in 2010 I have been able to dedicate most of my time to painting the landscape and seascape of West Wales.
