Glyn came to Aberdyfi from the Lake District in 1975 to join the Outward Bound staff. It was while working with youth and adult groups in the outdoors that he discovered the beauty of the mountains, valleys, coast and people of Wales. Always with a sketchbook, it was a chance meeting with the local artist, Edward Morris, that he was introduced to watercolours.
Glyn later met the Morris’s younger daughter, Claire, and they married two years later. They moved to Hong Kong in 1979 and when three years later a chance was offered to take over The Gallery from the Morris’s in 1982, the pull to move back permanently to Aberdyfi was irresistible and they both became professional artists
For many years Glyn combined his work as an artist with cabinet making and as an an art tutor in watercolours, pastels, acrylics and line & wash. He is a Fine Art Publisher producing all of The Gallery prints and cards and publishes prints for other artists, both on canvas and watercolour papers.
Glyn enjoys all aspects of mountaineering and, since 1975, is a member of the Aberdyfi Mountain Rescue Team . He enjoyed 21 years as a Helmsman on the Aberdyfi Lifeboat, continuing as a RNLI Guild member. He also works regularly for The Odyssey Cancer Trust, giving funded adventure holidays to people with cancer which includes art and sculpture sessions in the outdoors. He is a photographer, sailor, canoeist, pilot, gardener and also sings with the Cor Meibion Bro Dysynni - Male Voice Choir.
