Dave Roberts is a self-taught pastel artist who was born in Aberystwyth and now lives near Nannerch in Flintshire. He has taken a break from painting over the last few years but will be returning on a full-time basis in September 2017.
Dave’s specializes in landscape pastel paintings, particularly of Snowdonia and the Clwydians. His work is the antithesis of what most would imagine a pastel painting to be; they are generally bold and vivid, with lots of detail. Commentators appreciate the almost photographic quality of the some of his pieces.
Dramatic skies and water feature heavily and he is generally to be found walking in the mountains at sunrise or sunset to capture the best light.
He has undertaken several solo exhibitions and has won awards for his work.
Dave’s new website will be up and running when he returns to painting later in the year. He is pleased to undertake commissions and can be contacted via or by phoning 07960 055593 for those who want to get their orders in early.
