A Nostalgic Painting
I'm fascinated by local History, so when I was recently walking in Swansea and saw an old fashioned Barber Shop I knew I had to Paint it. I changed the colour of the shop to red from bright yellow as most of the Barber shops years ago were red or white and I wanted to create a nostalgic feel to the painting (also the car and shop would have clashed as they were exactly the same colour). Other than that the shop is painted exactly as it looked on my walk.
I have been teaching Art & Crafts and Computers for almost ten
years now. I work with a variety of people from Secondary School Pupils
to Special Needs and O.A.P's. I find it very fulfilling to teach people
the wonders of Art and Crafts.
I also love to paint bright, colourful scenes of the Gower Peninsula
giving the paintings almost a Mediterranean feel. I sell prints and
originals of my work.
My other passion is the Welsh Language which I teach through podcasting
and blogging, because I think it's important to share this beautiful
language with anyone who wants to know more about it.
