Self Portrait
Welsh painter and printmaker. After being advised to take up art by a doctor on account of his ‘abnormality’ (epilepsy), he studied at the Slade School, 1941–4. He taught at Highgate School, London, 1944–73, then retired to his native Anglesey. His most characteristic pictures are lyrical Welsh landscapes with simplified forms, the paint richly applied with the palette knife. He had numerous one-man exhibitions.
