JUNE
TALK TALK – An online interview

On one of the hottest days this summer, I was interviewed on “Llanelli Online News” for a casual chat about my work, location and lifestyle. 
It was a long relaxing interview in our garden overlooking the stunning Gower Peninsula and as the video shows, the panoramic views left the editor in awe. He asked a number of questions relating to my reasons for relocating to Machynys Bay and the link between the coastal outlook and my paintings. 
Since moving to West Wales nearly 4 years ago, my life has completely changed. This beautiful coastal location is a major influence in my work as most of my paintings are based on Welsh seascapes. Art has now become an important part of my life and combined with fishing and kayaking, the lifestyle has never been better either. It is without doubt, the place to be…

AUGUST
NEW WORK

Recent work completed include The Helvetia Shipwreck, Whitesands Bay, Burry Port Beachfront, The Whiteford Lighthouse and Barbados Surf. These paintings are part of a series which are large format with the largest canvas being 250cm wide x 150cm high. I have thoroughly enjoyed in undertaking this large scale work as I believe my style of painting adapts well to big canvases.

NOVEMBER
WELSH COASTAL MAGAZINE

The November issue of the popular Welsh Coastal Life magazine features an article on a selection of my paintings and the influence of living by the coast at Machynys Bay.

JANUARY 2019
COMING SOON

On 6 January 2019, S4C will feature a new series on small gardens in Wales called “Pobl a’u Gerddi” as the production company Tinopolis were keen to show a coastal garden with an interesting story. Much to my surprise, they liked the idea of the connection between my paintings and our coastal garden which overlooks the stunning Gower Peninsula. The filming was undertaken in the early part of July this year which was perfect as the weather was just right. Our slot is planned to appear in the first series on 7 January. So it is a case of wait and see.
