I am from Porthmadog, and am a keen photographer. I get my inspiration from the beautiful scenery around home and also Bardsey Island which is like a second home. Old postcards of the locality are also an inspiration and I work in layers of colour with texture in acrylic or oil.

I started out in Photography joining a Camera Club and competing on a regular basis. I loved black and white photography and had my own dark room. As cameras became digital and increasingly technical I longed for simplicity and freedom When I moved over to drawing and painting I found what I wanted. I am experimenting with different media and my favourite is acrylics. My images at the moment are mainly landscape with a historical slant.
