Morfa Harlech Studies

I have been making studies of the sand-hills at Harlech since the 1960s. I have no pre-determined work methods and over the years I have used a wide range of media: watercolour, oil paint, oil pastel, chalk pastel, Indian ink, graphite and conté. Latterly I have used conté exclusively.

Morfa Harlech is one of the fastest-growing dune systems in the world and it is possible to find all stages in dune growth, from embryonic to maturity, in close proximity. The origin of the new dunes is sand being driven ashore by wind and wave action, the sand itself having been deposited in the Irish Sea at the end of the last Ice Age. It is considered that the morfa will continue to grow for another thousand years.
