Di Metcalfe is a full-time artist based in Poynton, Cheshire. After gaining an A level in art at school she didn't turn her attention to continuing her studies until 2004 when she attended Macclesfield College as a mature student to study Fine Art. She says that this was "definitely one of the best decisions I ever made" and concentrates her work on her local landscapes in Cheshire and of course, her beloved Llŷn Peninsula.

Di and her family have been visiting north Wales, and the Llŷn Peninsula in particular, regularly for over thirty years. In that time Di has gained an intimate knowledge of the area.

"The Llŷn Peninsula is achingly beautiful, and so full of contrasts, described in the poem 'Retirement' by R S Thomas who lived in the area for many years as 'a bough of country that is suspended between sky and sea'"
