Artist’s Statement

I’m an Anglesey-based artist who paints and draws a range of subjects (including Portraits, Landscapes, Figures, Still Lifes and Murals) in acrylics, oils, pencil and charcoal, as well as making linocut prints and welded scrap metal sculptures.

I am fascinated by how we portray and perceive three dimensional forms on two dimensional surfaces, especially as it relates to the human face and figure.

I also love the wide range of picturesque locations that Anglesey has to offer and continue to seek new ways to do them justice on canvas.

I take inspiration from artists of all eras and movements, but especially from Post-Impressionism onwards and particularly from Cubism which, I feel, still has more to offer figurative artists in the digital age.

My artistic heroes include Pablo Picasso, Henri Matisse and David Hockney.
