I’m influenced by the land and always look at the layers that are part of it, such as history, culture, traditions, myths, literature and song. My work is an echo of my relationship with the land and I experiment and research with materials which allow me to produce multi-layered work. I choose to communicate my interpretations through using layers of paint which overlap in order to express the edges, lines and trails that are seen in the land that surrounds us. Each mark is a form of language and represents the dialogue and my relationship with the land. I mainly work with paint, ink, soft pastels and oil, my recent work is a reflection of nature journeys.
The main focus of the work is my personal response to specific places, concentrating on the rural land of Pen Llŷn. My period studying at Wimbeldon College of Art in London has influenced my work and has helped me to appreciate my roots. The three years spent at the college made me realise how important it is to treasure the language, the land, our traditions and wealth of unique culture.
