After growing up with a love of painting I started selling my work shortly after moving to Wales in 1993. What started out as a hobby very quickly became a full time occupation. I work mainly in Pastel, drawing a variety of subjects such as Landscapes, Portraits and Animals.
Initially I started out by doing commissions mainly of peoples pets or family but recently have concentrated on work for exhibitions. I have exhibited and sold work in various locations including the National Exhibition of Wildlife Art, Oriel Cymru, Galeri Betwys y Coed, Oriel Bodfari, Ludlow Castle, The Castle Park Arts Centre, Frodsham, The North Wales Open and many local exhibitions.
In 2012 I joined forces with other local artists to form the Cilcain Artisans in order to exhibit each year as part of the Helfa Gelf Art Trail. As a group they we can offer a truly unique experience to the public who get to see artists of varying style and techniques together in one place.
I love to pass on my experience and knowledge to others which I do by running art classes in Mold plus visiting many local Art groups across North Wales, Cheshire and the Wirral giving workshops and demonstrations. Please contact me for more details.
