My work is connected to Wales and the endlessly inspiring rural coastal landscape where I live. My paintings have evolved to become less about a particular place or view and more about the atmosphere, stories, textures and patterns of my coastal home.
Steeped in history the Ceredigion coast has worked its way in to my psyche and is embedded in the many layers that make up each of my paintings.
Since graduating art school in 2012 (BA Hons/Fine Art/Printmaking) I have moved from Cardiff to the Ceredigion coast and set up an Art Studio on the outskirts of Llangrannog. I have now been a full time Artist since 2018. I specialise in Printmaking and Acrylic painting, Print techniques include Collagraph, etching, mono-print and drypoint printing.
