Landscapes, Seascapes and semi – abstracts of the beautiful Isle of Anglesey are painted in rich luscious oil paint using palette knives and brushes on canvas. These together with my little flower paintings can be found in galleries in Wales and England.
Open throughout the year by prior appointment.
The underlying theme of my work is rhythms of the natural world. I use collage, inks and drawing to express the essence of things present and the layers of the past. The abstracted aspects of the landscape I then redefine into glyphs and totems of place.
For many years I have been exploring faces carved on C18th slate headstones – I have a collection of over 100 photos. Time obscures them with lichen and soil, they crumble and split, but enough remain to stare back through the centuries and fascinate me – my work uses layers, pasted on or pulled off; my canvasses record history embedded in the earth, as if covering or uncovering the past.
I am a marine artist – i.e. most of my work has a marine theme or subject matter from historical reconstruction, sail, steam etc but I also lean towards coastal landscapes and indeed some landscape in general. I work in oil, watercolour, ink, and some pastel. My work has exhibited at the Royal Society of Marine Artists, London. Also exhibitions in Liverpool and of course Anglesey.
The Japanese method of Gyotaku printing is traditionally used to print fish. It translates to ‘fish rubbing’. I make Gyotaku prints using local marine and botanical species where possible. Each print is hand pressed and unique.
In addtion to days open during the Weeks I am open throughout the year by prior appointment.
Exhibition of paintings and sketch books showing natural shapes and structures created by the textures of walled fields, ancient rock formations with seascapes of dramatic cliffs and dune systems. Constantly changing atmospheres provide a challenge and stimulus.

I paint the natural world in oil, acrylic and watercolour with colour a predominant feature along with shape and movement. I create surface print designs from my original artwork and have them printed onto fabric, ceramics, greeting cards and other merchandise which are for sale in my shop.
