About / Biography

I am a Welsh Artist based in Pontypridd, South Wales. I paint in Oil Paints, Pastels, Acrylic, Watercolour & Ink. I love to experiment with colour to create moods and atmospheres in my art and I take my inspiration from the world around me - it never ceases to amaze me!

I love to paint Seascapes, Landscapes and Pet Portraits, and feel especially drawn to the rugged Welsh coastline and beautiful South Wales countryside.

There are many artists I admire such as Marc Bohne, Paul Lewin, Sarah Adams, Andrew Wyeth, Cezanne, Edward Hopper, Kyffin Williams, and many many more. I hope a little bit of their work has rubbed off on me.

If you are interested in commissioning a piece of art, take a look at the commissions section for details, then contact me via email on the Contact page or on my Facebook page and I will be happy to discuss your requirements further. A commissioned painting makes a lovely gift.

Brew yourself a cup of tea or coffee (preferably with a few biscuits on the side too!), make yourself at home and have a browse through the galleries. I hope you enjoy looking around.

Dawn Harries.
