About Me

I'm a self taught artist specialising in capturing the stunning beauty of the North Wales landscape. I was born in Aberystwyth and having lived in most corners of the UK over the years, I am now settled in Caerwys, Flintshire.

I had a long career in the charity sector, painting and selling through galleries on a part-time basis. I gave it all up to live the dream and became a full-time professional artist in 2018.

I can often be found in the mountains at dawn or dusk, where the light is at its most dramatic. Twilight and the 'magic hour' offers a space in-between. A moment of peace and time to reflect and assess the day that's been or the day ahead. Walking in the mountains alone and in the dark is one of the most ethereal experiences I know.

I work exclusively in pastel and my work is the antithesis of how most people would imagine a pastel painting to be. My paintings are full of bold colours and contain lots of detail. In fact, customers appreciate the almost photographic quality of some pieces.

Dramatic skies and water are a strong component of my work. But then that is a prerequisite for painting the wonderful North Wales scenery!

My work can be found in collections across the UK. Most of my current work for sale is listed here or can be seen "in the flesh" at my own gallery in Caerwys, North Wales.
