I was born and raised in Dolgellau, North Wales and went to school in London attending a Grammar school well known for its Art and Design section. After art O and A levels and preparation of a Foundation course portfolio I moved to Liverpool to study Medicine. I became a Consultant Radiologist at University Hospital Aintree in a Head and Neck cancer unit.
I continued with my Art development during my Medical career exhibiting in Liverpool as part of the European City of Culture. 3 years ago I decided to take early retirement from the NHS to pursue my Art career further. I have exhibited at least 3 times a year in Liverpool and North Wales for the last 10 years and 2018 has been my busiest by far with a total of 7 shows. I have a permanent exhibition of works now at Tyn Y Cornel Hotel, Tal Y Llyn where my paintings of the Cader Idris area have found their natural home.
I love the dark Welsh landscapes of my home town area in South Snowdonia and the bright night time landscapes of the city of Liverpool. My recent work has also included portraits of famous faces from these areas.
My painting titled “Afon Mawddach at Coed Y Brennin” featured in a BBC2 art series called Show Me the Monet and is part of the exhibition at Oriel Plas Glyn-Y-Weddw.
