Exploring landscape, drawings featuring the old quarry hospital in Bethesda alongside views over Anglesey and the Irish sea.
Born in Bangor, North Wales in 1970, Darren studied fine art & printmaking at Falmouth school of Art & Design and is one of the rising stars of Welsh painting.
Following a series of increasingly successful exhibitions, the late Sir Kyffin Williams invited Darren to exhibit alongside him at Sir Kyffin’s last London show. Needless to say, the exhibition was a huge success and Darren sold every picture. This was followed by numerous sell-out shows with Martin Tinney Gallery and Thackeray Gallery London.
Working primarily in and around the landscape of North Wales, and more particularly, Anglesey & Bethesda; Darren approaches the landscape with a contemporary realism and honesty. His landscapes are created through almost painstaking observation and attention to detail. His drawings and paintings are precise, powerful and moving and celebrate the welsh landscape as it is now.
Darren has work in private and public collections, including the National Library of Wales and is represented by the Martin Tinney Gallery, where he has exhibited since 2005.
