About Me

I live and work in Ceredigion, West Wales with my husband Emyr and I have five children and ten grandchildren.

Although since early childhood, I have painted and experimented with many forms of arts and crafts, my career as an artist only began after my youngest child went to school in 1999 when I could devote my time to painting. I opened up my home studio in 2001 as part of the Cardigan open studios, and soon established a reputation as a landscape artist. Among the many private commissions that came in, I am proud to have painted a picture that was presented as a gift to HRH Prince of Wales in 2006. My work is represented in private collections in the U.K.. Europe, Kuwait, New Zealand, America, Canada and Australia.

 

My Work

My landscapes are a direct response to the beauty of creation - reflecting both the physical beauty that is so apparent here in West Wales and also my spiritual beliefs as a Christian. I have a great passion for the wild places, mountains and skies of Wales which I seek to capture in my work. I like to paint tranquil places that surround us, yet in our busy lives, we may pass by, un-noticed.

I paint using the mediums of oil or soft pastels. Most of my work is produced on location, here in Wales, although, as my brother lives in New Zealand, I do like to paint there when I visit. My larger works would then be produced in the studio using the studies I have done on site or using photographic reference.

I am to provide high quality products and a reliable service for my customers. All my products are made to the highest possible standards that I can attain which is why I have chosen not to mass produce my cards and make each one individually. I produce all my prints in the studio myself. I use a 300gsm 100% cotton matt paper, which is completely acid free. The inks used are ultra chrome inks and are very good for light-fastness when combined with the paper used.

Although Mainly a Landscape artist, I also paint a wide variety of subjects and will undertake private commissions that will be created to your own requirements.

I hope you will be enjoy visiting my web site and buying my products as much as I enjoy providing them for you.
