“Windows On Snowdonia” is a collection of photographs drawn from a much wider portfolio

taken over the past 9 years that captures the stunning beauty of this region in North Wales.

The images selected represent the amazing range of the landscape from the mountains, lakes,

rivers, ancient woodland, through valleys and even onto the varied coastline to the west of the

region, throughout the year and in the dramatic and often rapidly changing weather and light.

 

I am very lucky to live in a stunning location, our previous cottage overlooked the Nantlle valley,

facing south towards the Nantlle ridge and specifically Mynedd Craig Goch. It was that amazing view

from the cottage, captured during the winter, and shown above that was the inspiration for this collection.

The thinking behind the frames initially came from this idea of our very own window on Snowdonia.

They were inspired by the chunky wooden window sills I installed in the kitchen some years ago and

I wanted to get away from the large white borders and perfectly machine made frames more

often seen in photographic exhibitions. Each frame is hand crafted, unique and they have

evolved now to include the curved, more organic shapes with a visual weight that further compliments

the rugged and vast beauty of the landscape. My aim was to have a frame that is as much a part

of the image rather than just a convenient way to display the photographs on the wall.

 

These frames take time to produce and so are very limited in quantity. That being said I am happy to take bespoke

orders to produce frames to suit any size you require and for any of the images seen in the galleries on my website.

If you would like to place an order then please contact me directly to discuss your requirements
