Painting began as a hobby with me after retirement. I am self taught, and it soon took over my life and to this day I am still painting. I belong at an art club in Ystradgynlais, Clwb Celf Ystrad, which was formed over 15 years ago and is still going strong.
I am greatly inspired by the beautiful countryside and beaches in Wales, love colour and hope this is reflected in my paintings. I have progressed from watercolours to pastel and oils but enjoy all media of painting.
I have exhibited and displayed and sold work in various galleries in and around Wales. You can also find me on face book under Carol West art.
