“I have run and walked most of the mountains and hills here and though my landscape paintings and drawings are rarely specific to one recognisable place, they endeavour to express certain essential dramatic and lyrical qualities of the North Wales environment A full-time painter since 2000, I am told that my work, much in mixed media, is vibrant and energetic. It involves a searching for the rhythms of land and figure, a theme which I developed in my MA Fine Art course at Glyndwr University in 2011. I have exhibited in galleries and Art Fairs throughout the UK.Website
