Since graduating from art school in 2012 (BA Hons/Fine Art/Printmaking) my work has explored Welsh identity through a study of folklore and tradition, with my current work inspired by life on the Ceredigion coast.
Recent years have been spent renovating a small holding in West Wales (now thankfully finished) and in 2018 I became a full time artist. Printmaking is still an important part of my work but I'm also enjoying a return to watercolour painting and assemblage.
I teach workshops in Drypoint, Lino cutting and Collagraph, at Stiwdio 3 in Cardigan, dates can be found at. www.makeitinwales.co.uk
I teach monthly workshops in Collagraph, Lino cutting, and Monoprint, in spring and autumn at the Art Workshop in Rhiwbina, Cardiff. If you wish to join us please contact Gen at www.theartworkshop.co.uk
