About

I studied BA (Hons) Visual Arts at Swansea, graduated in 1995 then a PGCE in Art & Design (Secondary Education) at UWIC in 1997. I returned  home to Pembrokeshire to lecture in Art and Design and Photography. I also work as a fine art painter, commercial and fine art photographer.

 

I work in various media such as, 35mm film, pinhole photography, digital photography and silkscreen printing, combined with mixed medium painting.


I have exhibited my work throughout Pembrokeshire in solo and group exhibitions, in Llantwit Major, Carmarthen,The Royal Cambrian Academy, Conwy and London. I have also produced work for several Pembrokeshire businesses.


For my latest mixed medium work I use canvas board, acrylic paint, text relating to the artwork and maps of image location. The work is layered using brushes, and pallet knife then sanded back (palm sander) to reveal under painting layers, onto this I silkscreen print my own Photoshop manipulated photographic images. 

Each photographic silk screen is used for one artwork only, making each artwork unique.

I draw my inspiration from my love of Pembrokeshire especially walking my dog Grover, who regularly appears in my work. Also my travels throughout the UK and abroad.
