Artworks 1981-90

This shows a further widening of media into painting, and printmaking and installation.

Artworks 1991-2000

This shows developments in composite photographic assemblage, both 2D and 3D, and some experimentation with artist’s books and ’3D painting’ (painting on 3D structures).

Artworks 2001-10

This decade is dominated  by two long series of composite photographic works, one featuring Barry’s Parade Gardens and Old Harbour, the other concentrating on Dyffryn House and Gardens, about six miles from Barry.

Artworks 2011 to now

The ‘Header’ picture was taken from the Parade Gardens in front of our house. It shows the breakwater which stands at the entrance of Barry Old Harbour, which for generations gave refuge to small ships during stormy weather.
