Great feature in Walesonline and the Western Mail today on how art therapy is helping me to recover from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and how painting still helps me therapeutically today. I do not know where I would be if it was not for art and painting. Also I am thankful for my husband, Seamas, who runs all the … Read the rest

North Facing Light

Although Spring has sprung I am still painting in my attic studio, too cold to be in the outside cabin studio.
My skylight is north facing which is the best light for painting as one gets a good constant light all day. In the evening I supplant whatever existing day light there is by switching on the “day lights” seen

All Happed Up for the Road

Delighted to say I have just SOLD this lovely oil painting “Happed Up” of an old gentleman walking down the street in Carmarthen, catching the bright warming, descending sun on his face.
