'Works On Paper'

Born in 1941, Mike is a prolific artist who takes inspiration from the Welsh culture in which he grew up and is heavily influenced by the lives of the people and places of the valley .His subject matter is drawn from his observations both past and present.

Brought up in the mining community of Godre`r-graig his images reflect the hard living conditions that his family and neighbours often had to endure. Paintings and drawings of women scrubbing steps, baking, hanging out washing, or simply sitting sharing a quiet moment with the onlooker, contrast with the granite figures of men who worked in the thriving steel and coal industries, yet both convey the individuality and richness of their lives.
