Snowdon in Wales is a special mountain for me as I have climbed it several times. On this occasion I took the very exposed arête route called Crib Goch to the summit and while navigating the ridge we were met with thick cloud that created this atmospheric scene.
From a young age, I developed a fondness for wildlife and dramatic landscapes from spending lots of time in woodland around Horsham and visits to the South Downs. As I got older, my interest grew and trips to Snowdonia and The Lake District really cemented my love for the great outdoors, inspiring my art today. Capturing dramatic landscape scenes, often in moody weather; I paint using oils, in a bold, loose realism style.
