Description: The Engine Houses at Crown Mine, part of the Botallack Mine site on the west coast of Cornwall and now a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The Botallack mines are known as submarine mines because they travel half a mine out to sea, beneath the sea bed. It would have been a noisy and dangerous place to be, at it's peak of production of copper and arsenic, but since 1880s it has been silent. Perched on the edge of the cliff it is now a place of quiet reflection.

Artist Biography:

I have lived and worked in Mid Wales for the past 25 years and drawn a great deal of inspiration from the surrounding countryside - which varies greatly from rolling hills to dramatic mountains and glorious coastline.
I am largely self taught but have attended courses run by Aberystwyth Art School when when time permitted. Now I have retired I am able to give my love of painting and drawing my full attention.
I have always painted when time permitted and have produced and sold many art works, mainly through retail and some of my art works have found homes in America, Australia and mainland Europe.
I enjoy working with different media and different styles letting the subject matter direct me in my choices.
