This early stylised painting of a secluded valley reflects the artist’s sense of belonging to the North Wales heartland, as well as the influence of his early artistic mentor Elis Gwyn Jones, who taught him at Pwllheli in rural North West Wales. He attended the Slade School of Art, taught at Liverpool Regional College of Art (later Polytechnic) from 1965 to 1989, and was then Head of Art and Design at Coleg Menai, Gwynedd, until his early retirement in 1994.
