Lives in Brecon, Powys. Studied Fine Art at Reading University followed by a Masters at Leeds University. “Every picture is a fight. It wouldn’t be worth doing, I suppose, if it weren’t. One suffers cold, heat, stiff neck, tennis elbow. Brolly springs a leak, blows away. Easel collapses. Seed’s in one’s socks and prickles in one’s pullover! I can’t decide if it’s me fighting to find how to say it or the picture fighting to get itself said. That they do get themselves somehow said is not a tribute to my skill, but to the beauty which,in spite of all that we do to our environment,insists on breaking out wherever it finds the smallest chance”.
St. David’s artist, Pauline Beynon, runs the ORIEL-Y-FELIN GALLERY in St. Davids, with business partner Angela Samuel. Born in Derbyshire, she graduated in Art and Psychology at Loughborough and taught near Burton-on-Trent. Having farmed the land around the impressive St. Davids Cathedral for many years with her family and owning the well-known Tyddewi herd of pedigree Welsh Black Cattle, she delights in the wild, untamed Pembrokeshire landscapes and seascapes, interpreting their constantly changing light and textures and moods in a variety of media. Her work is shown exclusively at the Oriel-y-Felin Gallery in St. Davids, with occasional exhibitions elsewhere in the UK.
Postage and packaging (to UK) is £6 on all of Pauline's prints.
Susie was born in North Wales and after graduating in animation and graphics worked as a designer in Cardiff. In 2001 she became a full time painter. She loves the Welsh coastlines with quirky architectural features, and her brightly coloured work often contains textures, typography, fabrics and things that sparkle. All her original work will have a fabric heart stitched on - she only paints places she loves! These cheerful paintings make you smile and she and her husband have recently started to make ceramics featuring her designs.

Sheila Craft lives close to Porthgain on the North Pembrokeshire coast which is the inspiration for many of her oil paintings. Her love and understanding of the mythical quality of the landscape are very evident in her work, and she achieves effortlessly the luminosity of light so special and individual to this part of North Pembrokeshire.
Postage and packaging (to UK) is £6 on all of Sheila's prints
