I’m an artist/illustrator, based in South Wales, UK.
I use drawing, painting, photography and collage in my work. I’m inspired by landscape, weather, the change of the seasons, fairy tales and poetry. My blog title comes from Byron – “She walks in beauty like the night/Of cloudless climes and starry skies/And all that’s best of dark and bright/Meet in her aspect and her eyes”. The phrase “all that’s best of dark and bright” summed up what I want to capture in my work.
The always changing and expanding list of artists that inspire me includes Van Gogh, John Piper and John Martin. You can see what’s influencing me at the moment on my ‘Art Inspiration’ Pinterest board.
My other interests include politics, old movies (1930s/40s/50s), making things, wildlife, and cooking.
Welcome to my world.
