Glyn is originally from Cwm y Glo, and now lives with his wife Mari and daughter Gwen in Caernarfon.

Over the years Glyn has exhibited his work in a number of galleries in solo and group shows including Plas Glyn y Weddw, Oriel Mon, Ffin y Parc, Galeri Caernarfon, Royal Cambrian Conwy, Oriel Ger y Fenai, Lion Street Gallery and many more.

Not only is Glyn a landscape artist but has also worked on many creative wellbeing projects and sessions including 'Wellbeing for Me', 'Lead Creative Schools' and 'Art for Wellbeing' with young people through Gwynedd Youth.

As an artist Glyn has sold many drawings and paintings over the years, both in galleries throughout Wales and by private commissions, in the UK and abroad to countries such as Canada, France, Australia and the Netherlands.

Although he has always been in employment, working with young people, communities and within the educational sector, he has remained faithful to his art practice, continuing with drawing and painting when able to do so.

These artworks are about light, about rising after the covid period and lockdowns in Wales and the rest of the world. The work celebrates what we have on our doorstep.

I react to the landscape by using my personal language and explore the process in my studio. In the studio I enjoy exploring technique and process. I simply paint the world around me, the land, still life and everyday situations.

I believe in creating original pieces and seeing the world afresh, simply reacting to what is in front of me. I am interested in colour and shape within the land, as well as the vast history and culture we have here in North Wales which is embedded into the slate quarries and surrounding mountains.

I want people to realise how lucky we are to live here in this area and to make the most of what we have on our doorstep.

The work is about risk taking and trying new processes, making mistakes, and having the bravery to continue with what I believe in. Although some works seem figurative, I am constantly pushing boundaries and taking risks, sometimes producing abstract works, shifting between different methodology and approaches, keeping myself interested and engaged.

The land is very important to me, and I want to continue exploring the great outdoors. I simply react to the land where I was born and have been brought up in, trying to capture a moment in time through a creative process.
