Born in Hereford, educated in Cardiff, I am a professional artist who lives in Swansea. I love light and colour.

In my art I am drawn to light and shadows and how they shape our emotions, whether it is moonlight on the sea, summer sun on a British beach, the shadows under chestnut trees in an autumn park or thin spring sunshine on daffodils.
I remember visiting the South of France as a teenager and being mesmerized by the dazzling light, I have been attempting to capture that excitement about light in my paintings ever since.I aim to make people look at the ordinary and see the extraordinary beauty in it.

Morning on Mewslade

Mewslade Bay is just round the corner from Worms Head and Rhossili Bay. There is no beach to speak of at high tide. At low tide, however, the sandy beach can be reached if you scramble down over some slippery rocks, and thick beds of seaweed that have been washed up against rocks.
