Originally from Wales, I now live in the Okanagan and have lived throughout much of western Canada during the last thirty years or so. I am a painter and a writer and wrote a weekly column for the Kelowna Daily Courier for two years (‘The Green Fuse’). Post-secondary education includes Art School and training as an Art and English Literature in Bangor, N. Wales. I earned the Young Wales Society Prize for Excellence in Art in 1971. Have exhibited in the UK, Germany, the US and Canada. Most recent local showing was at the 2012 Sopa Fine Arts U-8 show in April, 2012.
