I studied BA (Hons) Visual Arts at Swansea, graduated in 1995 and then studied a PGCE in Art & Design (Secondary Education) 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, 35 mm film, pinhole photography, digital photography and silk screen printing combined with mixed medium painting.
I have exhibited my work throughout Pembrokeshire aswell as Llantwit Major, Carmarthen and 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 with acrylic paint, sometimes text relating to the artwork and maps of image location. For the photographic element I use silk screen-printing. I only screen print each image once, the work is layered and scraped back to reveal under painting and text. I draw my inspiration from my love of Pembrokeshire especially walking my dog, Grover, who regularly appears in my work. Also my travels in he UK and abroad.
