“I’d love to introduce you to my latest art book which has been over four years in the making.

‘Welsh Monsters & Mythical Beasts’ is an illustrated compendium exploring the mythical creatures of Wales, comprised of ink and watercolors. You may have heard of the Red Dragon (Ddraig Goch) featured on the national flag of Wales. Sadly, here in Wales, many of our other beasts are being forgotten.

I felt to sad to see that my culture is loosing such an amazing array of creatures and legends that surround them. Therefore, I decided to bring them back to the forefront of Welsh culture and introduce them to a new generation by sharing our rich mythology with the world.

I’m so excited about this art book, there’s so much contend and so many unique creatures, I hope you will love it too!”
