Walking and drawing around the Waun Wen area which is built on two steep hills, on either side of a major dual carriageway. The road was much narrower in the past, but traffic planners in the late 20th century decided to widen it, to 5 lanes in places, and cut one half of the community from the other, destroying a lot of homes and shops in the process. Anyway, this little slice of landscape I’ve sketched is on the upper hill, above the dual carriageway, where some of the tiny Victorian houses cling to a very steep slope overhung by masses of mature trees towering above them.

A Chance To Own One Of My Artworks
I have some small screenprints for sale, inspired by my drawings of the antique taxidermy collection at Swansea Museum. I have given these vintage artifacts a modern twist by combining them with images of rubbish – old fruit nets, bubble wrap and plastic – highlighting the problem of human pollution and how it affects wildlife.

20 percent of the cost of each screenprint sold goes to support Swansea Print Workshop, which receives no public funding.
