About me!

Seagull

Seagull! oil, pencil and gesso on linen, 60 cm x 60cm

I am an artist who loves painting in lovely North Wales.  I have just finished a really thrilling exhibition at the Carriage Works in Denbigh, when I pretty much sold out of oil paintings – including the above.  The ‘running birds’ as below were also very popular!

My book ‘Little Terns and Sea Holly’, a diary based on several years’ observation of the Nature Reserve at Gronant Dunes, Prestatyn, where Little Terns nest, has just been published by Penlan Publishing (click here for link!).   This follows the tiny birds from migration from West Africa, through courtship, nesting, bringing up babies, and return home.  I even followed them to Senegal, where they overwinter among the mangrove swamps.

Here is one of the illustrations for the book:

I have previously been selected for Open Exhibitions at the Grosvenor Gallery, Chester, and  the Royal Cambrian Academy, Conwy, as well for an exhibition for Helfa Gelf Open Studios event at the Mostyn, Llandudno.

Academically speaking, I have an MA in European Studies and the Postgraduate Diploma in Translation Studies, and have written one book of historical research, ‘The City of Ottawa: the story of a sailing ship’, for which I made a preliminary translation into French: this has just been published by Éditions GID in Quebec as ‘Le City of Ottawa: l’histoire d’un grand voilier’.  I am available for freelance French – English translating.
