Ric Foot, GreenFeet Crafts
Based in Llansadwrn, Ric uses digital technical pens and watercolours to produce his renderings of local urban scenes.
I live in rural West Wales & love to draw inspiration for my watercolour & ink paintings from its rich history of myths & legends as well as its intransigent beauty…. whatever the weather!
I trained as a textile artist, specialising in embroidery, but I have since returned to my first passion of painting. However, my love of textiles is very evident in the way I construct my work, as is an obsessive eye for fine detail. As well as original watercolours, I produce prints & cards.
Based near Porthryd, Viv uses a Littlejohn Press to produce limited edition prints, mainly of birds but also of local scenes. She works with a variety of techniques and accepts commissions.
