Coastal Structures and an Ice Cream Van Project

In 2017 I sketched my way up and down the coast of Wales, especially Cardigan Bay looking at coastal structures. I was particularly interested in those structures that may potentailly be affected by rising sea levels and increased storm forces due to climate change and ended with the question “how long were these structures intended to last?” The resulting paintings were shown at MoMA, Machynlleth in February, March and April 2018. The Ice Cream Van became an inclusion in the project by virtue of the fact that it parks up on the beach at Ynyslas every summer.

Demise of the Rural Welsh Filling Station

In 2013 I worked on an Arts Wales funded project looking at the struggle that rural filling stations had in the face of supermarket competition. The resulting paintings were shown at MoMA, Machynlleth in 2014.
