I grew up in Wales and that has had a significant impact on my work. In college I focused on the landscape of West Wales using collage, painting and etching to create works that were semi-abstract. Since moving to the States I am constantly striving to find landscapes that evoke the feeling I had growing up. The series I’ve been working on recently is based on the idea of memory and how it is captured and viewed. The paintings are a snapshot of snapshots I grew up looking at – of my childhood and family. Landscape still features prominently but more than anything I’m trying to portray moments in time and how we hold on to them.
