I used to live in Birmingham and the nearest holiday place to which we could drive or take a train was Wales – Central and North Wales. As children we never had to ask ‘Are we nearly there yet? because the landscape made it clear. As soon as we crossed the border into Wales the mountains rose around us and the tarmac began to twist and wind testing my Dad’s driving and the reliability of the old Morris 10 in which we were all squashed. This is how I first encountered mountains, and now I am living within a short drive of this magical place. In most of Wales the sky is really big and not interrupted by crowded high buildings. But it doesn’t often boast a beautiful blue sky. Grey clouds have often been my inspiration and I sometimes include rain in my painting because of my love of Wales.
