Dylan was born in 1961, in historic town of Caernarfon, North Wales and continues to live and work near his home town to this day.
Like many artists, Dylan began drawing and experimenting with paint from a very early age. Without realising it at the time this was to mark the beginning of a journey which would lead to him working as a full time, professional artist.
In 1984 Dylan joined a group of formally trained, professional artists to work within a shared studio environment. Over a period of ten years or so, this shared experience helped him to nurture and develop his skills, to explore and share new ideas, and to establish his own individual style and technique.
Although Dylan has never received any formal training, (as such) his love for art and his unwavering desire to paint combined with his many years of experience, natural talent and ability, has enabled him to flourish into a well-respected and admired artist in his own right.
He is comfortable working with pencil, charcoal, graphite, pastel, watercolour or oils and is equally happy to use a broad and varied range of subject matter. He refers however, to work mainly in oils on canvas to produce landscaped (often incorporating figures) or portraiture.
Over the years Dylan has accepted many commissions. Most of which have been portraits from private individuals from as far afield as the United States, Europe, South Africa and Australia, as well as more local clients such as Barry Morgan. The former Bishop of Bangor and Archbishop of Wales, and Maria Sax Ledger, a Zurich born artist who lived and worked in North Wales until her death in 2006.
