Biography – I have always loved painting since I was a child but after taking a foundation course in art I decided to study graphic design as my sensible head reassured that it would give me a living. During the course of that career I produced many illustrations in various media and in 2002 decided to return to painting as a channel for my love of the Welsh landscape.
Producing a prolific amount of work over the years in many types of media, it was to be pastel and acrylics that became my staple use. Pastels satisfy the love of drawing I have and the rich matt pigments create a very intense experience. Acrylics are more spontaneous and forgiving. I find myself running my hands over the finished surface as if to absorb the image. I still produce watercolours sometimes, enjoying mixing concentrated pigments, letting them dry thickly and pulling colour off. When I work I try to fully exploit the characteristics of the individual medium.
