I specialised in animal portraits as I was brought up on a farm in Anglesey and have always loved being surrounded by nature. My mother was a full time artist ( Jill Mickle) , and we had regular visits from Kyffin Williams who became a family friend and used to come and paint on the farm regularily. I did my foundation course at 'Coleg Menai', Bangor, under the fantastic Welsh artist Peter Prendergast and then went to do aB. A. Honours Degree course at 'Falmouth School Of Art & Design', Cornwall. Since leaving college I have always painted- from backdrops for a theatre company, large scale murals , a live three day mural for RABI at Stoneleigh Royal Show. I also undertook a private Fine Art Restoration course with artist and restorer Jill Bagshaw at 'Inglenook Fine Arts ' , Nantwich, where I was her assistant for three years. More recently since moving to the hills near Welshpool, I have become more specialised - concentrating on animal paintings. A number of my paintings have gone to 'Mullers' dairy in Shropshire; & 'Joseph Helers Cheese Company', in Nantwich, Cheshire; and lots of private commissions for customers asking to have their favourite cow or horse painted.
I have exhibited alongside with the late David Shepherd, Emily Lamb, William Silvers & Pollyanna Pickering, as part of a travelling RSPCA fundraising exhibition- each artist representing a different animal charity- mine being The Orangutan Land Trust.
