I am a Welsh-American artist whose early career was in visual communications: in journalism, print, digital design, and illustration, working as an illustrator, designer, art director and finally as design director for a group of 36 publications. I continue to freelance internationally as a designer and illustrator. In 2009, I decided (not due to redundancy) that I wanted to move away from work in publishing to find new successes in teaching, making and most honestly, to live a more varied creative life, for this I emigrated to Wales. In Pembrokeshire, I teach creative awareness and OCN art courses for adult learners, NEET, children of all ages and lead workshops county-wide. From my own studio, cheese and pickles, I lead intensive workshops which help to prepare individuals in their own careers in design an illustration. For my own creative expression, I work as a painter, printmaker and collage relief artist, drawing inspiration from my surroundings, medieval and Celtic art, Welsh language, history, and beliefs. I have been a lead artist for Cauldrons and Furnaces 2012, held an artist-in-residency, and show in public and private galleries. My work is held in private collections around the world.
