Interviewed on BBC Radio Wales Arts Show!

I was invited to speak on the BBC Radio Wales Arts Show recently by Nicola Heywood Thomas. It's a regular arts show where Nicola previews the best of the Welsh contemporary arts scene in a weekly round-up.

In this interview, I talked about my new solo exhibition 'Shifting Edges' open 19th October to 27th November at Off The Wall Gallery in Llandaff, Cardiff. This new exhibition of paintings explores the subtle shades and undercurrents of feeling caught up within the anticipation of change.

I talked about the endlessly shifting nature of the sea and how this coastal landscape enables me to explore my own internal emotional landscape. I also discussed the ancient landscape of Pembrokeshire, and why it is so special to me as an artist.

'The sea is constant in its shifting nature; it's endlessly moving, you can't capture it, you can't keep it still and yet that's the one constant thing about it. There's something so magical about it, so universal to our human experience that you somehow want to hold onto it in some way even though you know you can't.'

Broadcast on 25th October 2019, you can listen to a collection of extracts from the BBC Radio Wales Arts Show on Soundcloud.
