Current Guest Artist

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.
