FFRIDD is Welsh for the rough ground between mountain and lowland, often considered “less favoured areas” in Ireland. However, it is this underappreciated ground where my love of working with, and painting ponies was born. Today my work reflects over 50 years of my special connection with the land I work, paint and live in.
