After running an art gallery for 9 years, I have allowed myself the chance to play. Daily beachcombing offers endless possibilities. I use sea-worn slate, rusty metal, china fragments, resulting in sculpture, mosaic and animation PLUS an installation inspired by the demolition in 2012 of boatmen’s sheds at Gallows Point, Beaumaris.
A group of Artists who like to express themselves through a variety of mediums, yet find common ground in aesthetics and style. Sevan Nigogosian, Mick Brown, Chris Higson, Gethin Wavel, Sadie Williams.
This year they have moved from stables to the main exhibition space in Oriel Ynys Môn
I love painting, the thrill of turning a blank white canvas into something unique, the way time just flies by while I’m painting and the joyness I feel when I get complimented on or sell my work. I use acrylic on canvas and prefer painting large paintings. I am happiest painting people but often get commissions for pet portraits and houses.
During the Open Studios Weeks the Arts Forum exhibits at least one piece of work from each of the participating artists. An opportunity to see which studios you might like to visit and pick up further information and advice.
Ucheldre programmes events, concerts, films, satellite broadcasts, exhibitions, societies and workshops throughout the year. During AAW it exhibits work by participating artists, along with workshops and an opportunity to meet makers and artists.
Open throughout the year
I enjoy varying my artistic practice between capturing Anglesey’s beauty in traditional paintings and 2/3D Fine Art pieces in a variety of materials based on concepts including biotechnology. I am also a jeweller and working on new ranges of silver pieces. Anglesey’s coastline inspires much of my work.

A personal response to all that surrounds us using various painting media. A compulsive, joyous and frustrating journey – are we nearly there?
I am relatively new to art and have been focusing on making my own pathway in developing my own style. I paint with feeling and spontaneity embracing the creative process of abstract expressionism as well as developing my love for collage and print making.
My attitude towards my work has become more sensitive to what I am doing and why I am doing it. As a consequence, I utilise locally sourced clays, minerals, oxides and wood ash in my slips and glazes. Salt glaze seems to emphasise and complement the somewhat unpredictable nature of these ‘as dug’ materials.
Enjoy looking for detail in extremely miniature models
and embroideries which have been featured in many
publications, exhibited in museums here and overseas
and also in National Trust houses in various parts of the UK. Imaginative recycling of scrap tat.
Open all year around by prior appointment.
