Dave is a self-taught artist who specializes in pastel landscape paintings of Snowdonia and the rest of North Wales.
He was born in Aberystwyth and has had the privilege of living in some of the most beautiful parts of the UK. However, home is now with his family in an old farmhouse near Mold in Flintshire. Dave recently gave up a perfectly good 'normal' job as chief executive of a national charity to concentrate on becoming a full-time artist.
Dave’s work is the antithesis of how most people would imagine a pastel painting to be; they are bold and vivid with lots of detail. A distinctive use of deep contrasts gives them depth and their particular character. Customers appreciate the almost photographic quality of some pieces. Dramatic skies and water feature heavily and you will often find him up in the mountains at sunrise or sunset trying to capture the best light.
Dave is a member of the North Wales Society of Fine Art.
