VALERIE LAND

Valerie studied art and design at Norwich and Farnham and took a post-graduate course at the University of Reading. For some years she was head of art in a private school. Since 1999 she has been a professional artist living in Wales. She exhibits, works to commission and tutors groups and individuals.
Valerie's home, in the small village of Friog, is a short, brisk walk from the sea, hills and woodland. These familiar places have been the focus of Valerie's work. Although her scenes are often typically Welsh, she favours capturing a particular mood rather than a specific location. Unspoilt, solitary landscapes and fragments are painted in a confident style. She is fascinated by the end of the day, the last light, when the sun, shows its face and for a short time turns all surfaces into a magical, contemplative and restful world. She loves shifting out of her comfort zone and is often experimenting with new ideas.

JANE WHITTLE

Jane Whittle came to live in the Dysynni Valley in 1989. After half a lifetime as a visitor and traveller she settled and began to make a garden – a quiet space for her family to get together, for groups or friends – and for her, of intermittent solitude.

Through years of long distance walking, she had developed an intimate relationship with landscapes, and, since living here, her work has come to reflect a sense of identification with this particular place, in all its moods and seasons. This kind of connection, and transformation, given sufficient solitary space and silence, can happen in a moment, or take years to mature. Eventually she began to use layers of coloured and textured translucent paper to hint at layers of meaning, perception and discovery. She wants the result to be as enigmatic as what provoked it, hopefully involving the viewer in a similar process.

Jane has exhibited regularly in Wales since 2000, including at the Ceridigion Museum, Aberystwyth; MOMA, Machynlleth; Welsh Artist of the Year and the Albany, Cardiff; Harlech Theatre; Bangor Museum; Plas Glan y Weddw; the RCA Conway; Cafe Croesor - and elsewhere with Art North Wales and CRYD.

Her work, including watercolours, drawings, prints, cards and books of poems, may be seen in her barn gallery (by appointment).

MIHANGEL ARFOR JONES

Mihangel Jones grew up on a Welsh mountain farm before moving to London to attend Art College for 6 years. After graduating he worked for many years as a freelance illustrator and painter, gaining an international reputation in the area of books and magazine illustration, packaging, advertising and large posters for hoardings.
He went on to establish his own company designing and producing modern textiles and became involved in higher education, heading up to a BA Honours course in illustration.
On returning to Wales, Mihangel set about converting a C16th farmhouse into a home and studio for himself, four cats and several hundred canvases.
He now exhibits extensively throughout the UK and welcomes visitors by prior arrangement.

JEAN NAPIER

Jean specialises in creative landscape photography and the magnificent scenery of the Snowdonia National Park where she lives is the main inspiration for her work. Man’s influences on the landscape are a recurring theme in her exhibitions, images and books.
She enjoys exploring the Welsh landscape and the camera helps her to select elements that embody the experience of being ‘in the ‘place’. Her primary motivation as a photographer is to promote appreciation of the versatility and creativity of photography as an art form - photography can be more than just a method of ‘recording’ moments.
She also believes passionately in ‘art-for-all’, giving everyone who wishes to, the opportunity of seeing their work displayed in a public space and she runs art projects and workshops with people of all ages and abilities throughout the UK.
Jean is an Associate of the Royal Photographic Society and has a BA (Hons) degree in Photographic Studies. Locally, Jean is best known for her photographic contributions to the following books: "Rhosydd - A Personal View"; "A Tale of Two Rivers - Mawdach & Dyfi"; "Snowdonia River Tales - Glaslyn & Dwyryd" and "The River Conwy – Source to Sea".
 
Jean is currently undertaking an MA at Aberystwyth University
