Interviews and Llwyn Celyn

May 8, 2018

This is a link to the interview I did last summer with The Landmark Trust’s Engagement Officer Kasia Howard,  published on the Landmark Trust’s website this April:

Most of the year so far has been taken up by focussing on finishing my 2 large drawings which will be shown at the Llwyn Celyn site next autumn.

I’ve been working on ideas and sketching for my next series of paintings, drawing and prints, too.

On Thursday 3rd of May I walked again up to Bryn Arw to sketch Llwyn Celyn from above, to be included in my second large drawing, ‘Map’. It was a glorious late spring day; nature vital, fresh and unfurling. I could sometimes hear the notes of a cuckoo somewhere to the west of me, carried on a gust of wind.


Here is a link to a transcription of an interview with the artist Catherine Wynn Paton, published in the Abergavenny Focus in April:
