Many customers like to know about the person behind the Artworks they buy. Here I shall tell you a little about myself and my work.
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 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.
