Welcome to my online Gallery

 

 

 

 

Living in this lovely valley means I am never without inspiration.

When the sun is out, I walk and sketch;
when the rain clouds come, it's time to retreat to the studio to paint.

My book: 'Ceiriog valley in colour' is a visual record of this valley.

Special feature

 

A keepsake book to inspire memories if you have ever visited or lived in this Welsh valley or the perfect gift for someone who appreciates something different.

Some years ago I found my art work to be the best therapy to combat the effects of cancer treatments, so this little book of colour is a venture to boost donations to my chosen charity, Cancer Research.

Ceiriog-in-Colour

Ceiriog Valley in Colour is a collection of my paintings from over the years and celebrates a beautiful Welsh valley, it forms a record of ancient trees and waterfalls, well known Inns and lush landscapes.

With text in Welsh and English and including snippets of poetry created by the well known bard John 'Ceiriog' Hughes, this small softback holds a wealth of images that have been printed to 30 pages of extreme high quality. The book measures 8" x 9.5" and traces the Afon Ceiriog from aqueduct and viaduct in Chirk up to the weathered boundary stones on the Berwyn.   a £2.50 donation is made with every sale to Cancer Research.

The book costs £15 inc P/P. To order contact Rosie on 01691 600310. Or use my contact form.

Copies are also on sale in Chirk Caffi Wylfa,  and the West Arms Hotel in Llanarmon Dyffryn Ceiriog.

  Creative 2 day painting courses in Tithe Barn Studio & Gallery

Would you like to learn the delights of watercolour painting in a pretty little Welsh village, far away from the madding crowd?

Surrounded by the beautiful landscape of the Berwyn hills and lush Ceiriog valley there's plenty of inspiration to let your creative desires flow!

Or would you like to improve your painting skills and just need that ellusive confidence to progress.

 

Over the past few years I have had increasing interest in workshops here at the Tithe Barn Studio, this year I will be offering

a 1 or 2 day course  for the absolute beginner or for those who struggle with watercolour.

The Tithe Barn Studio is friendly and relaxed and with restricted numbers to four, I can therefore guarantee you quality and personal tuition.

I will help you learn basic techniques and new skills with this delightful yet difficult medium.

Ideal for the single artist or a group of arty friends who simply want to try something different.

Or for a couple, where one partner wants to do their own thing, there's plenty of other activities in the valley to enjoy.

Basic techniques such as water control, colour mixing, layering, adding texture and experimental loose water will all be on the agenda, with the intent that all go home with a finished work of art and loads of inspiration.

 Watch this space for 2019 dates.

Best way to get here is by car, though we are only 20mins from Chirk railway station.

For those who want to stay overnight we have many cosy holiday cottages and two wonderful hotels

with award winning restaurants to start and finish your day in style, all within the village.

Hope to see you with paintbrush in hand!      Kind regards,  Rosie
