Covid-19

As it stands, most of the galleries where my work is on display are still open but with reduced hours. These include Oriel Ty Merion (Dyffryn Ardudwy), Artworks2 (Betws-y-Coed) and Creates (Monmouth). Other galleries, including the Williamson Gallery (Birkenhead) and Oriel Brondanw (Porthmadog) are closed completely.

You are still welcome to view the numerous works that I have on display at my home. If you would like to arrange a private viewing (with built in social distancing!), please contact me.

 

Obviously, I continue to sell both originals and prints online 

My pastel painting workshops here at Glasfryn Hall are currently suspended; however do get in touch if you would like me to tell you when they are up and running again.
