Our April 2019 Guest Artist is Rob Ackroyd.
We are delighted to show Rob’s framed photographs and greetings cards which beautifully portray the views, buildings, flora and fauna of Wales.
I have always been interested in photography. I was brought up on a farm in Ceredigion in West Wales, and took many photographs of the animals – goats, horses, ducks, chickens and so on.
I have continued to photograph farm animals, but I now also love to capture the beautiful Welsh landscape and local wildlife. Over the last few years I have taken a series of photos of local views, waterfalls, flowers, fungi and insects. I am also passionate about Welsh history and culture. For many years I have been travelling around Wales photographing holy wells, castles, churches, the homes of famous Welsh people and so on.
I have won various competitions with my photos over the years, and I have always had positive things said about my work. So this year, for the first time, I have decided to try and sell some of my photographs.
I am based in Blaenpennal in Ceredigion, where I have lived for most of my life.
