Client Testimonials

Happy client in Pembrokeshire with their framed print

"After you left, I decided that it would be a shame not to have at least one hanging where I can see it and gain so much pleasure from it straight away, so I have managed to put 'Cenarth' in the dining area. It does look lovely, it really does, what a talent you have."

Scenes & Subject Matter

Most of the landscape and seascape paintings on this website are scenes on or near the west coast of Wales, in and around the Cardigan bay area, here in the UK. Cardigan is beautiful Welsh market town situated on the border of Ceredigion and Pembrokeshire.

Predominantly a landscape painter I often paint the beaches and coves north of Cardigan, including the Welsh coastal villages of Llangrannog, Mwnt, Cwmtydu, New Quay, Aberporth, Tresaith and Aberaeron. Heading south from Cardigan and over the river Teifi, I produce landscapes and seascape paintings of Pembrokeshire's beaches, such as Poppit, Ceibwr bay, Newport, Fishguard harbour and on down the west coast of Pembrokeshire to Newgale, Freshwater West, Barafundle Bay, and beyond. As well as beach paintings and coastal scenes I paint the inland and upland areas of Mid and West Wales. Often painting in the Preseli mountains, Pembrokeshire National Park, the Teifi Valley, Tregaron and further inland into some of the more remote parts of Britain like the Cambrian mountains and the Doethie Valley of Mid Wales.

There are lots of wonderful landscape artists in Pembrokeshire and Ceredigion, all producing different styles of paintings from abstract art through to impressionist art and hyper-realism. You'll find my own paintings are traditional impressionistic, and my preferred medium is oil paint. All of the paintings on this website are in oils.
