  • About this artist
  • I’m an artist who grew up in the Swansea valleys of Wales, where at a young age I forged a firm relationship with nature and Welsh mythology, both of which have been a constant inspiration to my art in almost all of its stages. As an adult I spent a few years each in the Essex countryside and rural Somerset, during which time I experimented with different art materials and honed my skills, all the while still finding inspiration in the natural world and continuing to learn about wider Celtic mythology. This research eventually resulted in an exhibition in Glastonbury in October 2019 called ‘Mythology and Y Mabinogion’. After the conclusion of this exhibition, mythology continued to inspire me, but with a heavier focus on landscape.

    Another thing that frequently informs my art is trying to remain positive against a lifelong struggle with anxiety; attempting to balance the weight of mental health with the desire to keep lighthearted and see the magic in the everyday is something I continuously hope to portray through my work. In the same vein, I like displaying that not all is what it seems, both with us and the world, and that the connections that bind us to nature, the magic of nature itself and the stories of our ancestors are still present and relevant, even in our modern world.
