Artist Statements

Painting is just one outlet for what moves us all when in the countryside and places of wild beauty. The things that make up our memories of times most enjoyed and where we are happy to remain - these for me are the motivations to paint and draw.

Like so many places in the world that we choose to visit, Wales has it all of course. My home is here amongst the mountains and along the Welsh coast - all shaped by its people and their activities; the history of the land and the ever changing weather.

My pleasure derives from the time taken to be still, observe and recreate the mood of the surrounding landscape. The scene changes in front of me and the light and darkness swap places as I paint, so what emerges onto the paper is no longer what my camera would freeze in time, but now a period of unfolding responses to the changes that guide my brush as the colour flows. I am now lost in the landscape and ready to take risks and be open to chance.

The bonus comes when the painting evokes an emotion or a memory in someone else and they want to be part of it.

I was encouraged to observe both light and colour by my father, artist Edward Morris, when we were on outings together. Subtle tones and changing light are of much more interest to me than bright sunny days.

I prefer to paint 'en plein air'; finding that working quickly, in an effort to capture the moment, yields better results.

Early morning light on the estuary is a particular favourite,especially if the water is still, with reflections.

Living in such a beautiful wild and unspoilt area, where the mountains literally meet the sea, means that I will never be short of subject matter.
