Artist from Beddau, Wales.
Celfyddwr o Meddau, Rhondda Cynon Taf.
I was awarded the Ivor Davies Award at this years National Eisteddfod for the work in the Exhibition 'that best conveyed the spirit of activism in the struggle for language, culture and politics in Wales'. This was a great honour for me.
Enillais i Gwobr Ivor Davies yn y Eisteddfod Cenedlaethol yn 2012 am y gwaith yn yr Arddangosfa Agored 'sy'n cyfleu ysbryd y frwdyr dros iaith, diwylliant a gwleidyddiaeth Cymru'. Mae fy malchder yn ddwfn.
I also had second prize at the Abertridwr Open Arts festival in 2013. This was also very important to me as the subject was the 100 year anniversary of the Senghenydd mining disaster.
Solo show 'Born of Pain and Iron' coming in April 2014 at The Penarth Pavilion. I try to enter local art competitions such as the Rhondda Heritage Park Open Art Exhibition as much as possible and a I also like to hang a couple in my hallway to scare the children....
