About / Biography

I am a Welsh Artist based in Pontypridd, South Wales with a passion for nature and wildlife.

I paint in Oils, Acrylics, Pastels, Watercolour & Ink. Primarily a landscape painter, I draw my inspiration from the stunning natural beauty of the British countryside, especially my local surroundings of Wales with its rugged coastline.

I'm constantly striving to capture the effects of light and shadow in my work, using various mediums in an impressionistic style, and I love to use colour to create moods and atmospheres in my pieces.

If you are interested in commissioning a piece of art, take a look at the commissions section for details, then leave a message on the Contact Me page or via my Facebook or Instagram pages and I'll be happy to discuss your requirements further.
