Mother Mountain

Moel Famau is the legendary hill of childhood, its ascent a kind of allegorical rite of passage for generations of Liverpudlians. In this new painting, I have created a partially imagined view of the Mother Mountain.


Tree of Life

A new painting from the studio. Far from being apocalyptic, this work is intended to bring some joy from its depiction of a barren mountain – imagined somewhere in Wales.


Aberllefenni

In another painting I was drawn to the mouth of the deserted mine in the mountainside, and in this drawn work – I was literally drawn again, to the nearby Foel Grochan which is punched into the hillside of an utterly remarkable landscape in the Afon Dulas valley.
