“One of the most talented Welsh artists I’ve seen in many years.” …. Benjamin Edom
Graham was born and brought up in Milford Haven.
After studying at Cardiff College of Art he worked as a graphic designer, running his own business for 30 years, first in London and from 1976 in Haverfordwest, Pembrokeshire. In 2000 he changed direction, taking up painting seriously. He now work full time as a professional Pembrokeshire artist and illustrator. Graham is a founder member of the United Kingdom Coloured Pencil Society (UKCPS), set up in 2001 to promote coloured pencil as a serious art medium, and although he is very much a mixed media artist, coloured pencil predominates his work.
Graham has exhibited widely and his work has featured in magazines such as Artists & Illustrators, Pratique des Arts (France), The Artist, Welsh Coastal Life, Pembrokeshire Life, Talking Point (UKCPS magazine) and in instruction books – The Coloured Pencil Artist’s Drawing Bible and The Landscape Artist’s Drawing Bible (published by Quarto/ Search Press). His work has also appeared on packaging and promotional material for Derwent Pencils and on many websites across the world.
“I live and work in the waterside village of Llangwm alongside the Daugleddau Estuary. My immediate surroundings and the spectacular Pembrokeshire coast and countryside provide me with endless subject matter, inspiration and ideas.” Graham Brace
