I am a painter working in North Wales.
I grew up in Llangefni, Anglesey and attended the David Hughes Secondary School, Menai Bridge. Following studies in fine art at Liverpool Art School and a John Moore’s Scholarship I continued studying on a post graduate fine art course at St Martin’s School of Art, London. Since then I have traveled widely, living and working in New York, Berlin, and Paris. In 2010 I moved to Mexico. As well as sculpture and painting I also work with sound and video. I have exhibited extensively both in my homeland and abroad. Leaving Mexico in 2015, I returned to to my Celtic origins in the wilds of North Wales. In 2020 I received funding for my solo exhibitions at Oriel Ynys Môn and MOMA, Machynlleth from the Arts Council of Wales.
“The iconography of my paintings – derived from the domestic mundane – responds to the absurdities, paradoxes and crisis of modern life. Unresolved tensions and a sense of bewilderment, dislocation and unease are central to my work. The paradoxical nature of painting, a process that can involve hours of solitary work to represent a singular instant of lived experience, provides me with opportunities to address our deep-seated traumas and recover hidden memories”.
