About

I am a reformed electrical engineer with a PhD in microwave field theory. My first job was in Paris helping to design the antenna of a french satellite. Naturally, my wife and I speak French. We still regularly visit our work colleagues in Toulouse.
I have always drawn and painted, and can now pursue my passion full-time. Wynn is a Welsh name, and Dai is the diminutive of Dafydd (David), my given name. It's a subtle distinction between the technologist and the artist.
Given my career choices, I was unable to attend art school, so am generally self-taught. Please don't hold that against me.
I produce pen and ink drawings, watercolour paintings, small oils on canvas panels, and larger oils on stretched canvas. Almost all of my artworks derive from reference photographs I have composed and shot on site at various exotic locations, generally in Western Europe. My artworks are in private collections in the UK, France, Spain, Portugal, Belgium, Canada, the USA, New Zealand and of course Australia.
My lifestyle choices are modern jazz, cycling, the French language, and travel.
My "Mission Statement" is to enrich people’s lives by capturing and sharing the world’s beauty as seen through my travelling artist’s eyes. I strive to create an uplifting viewer experience in my realist paintings, echoing my own joy as I capture natural ephemera for posterity in the form of realist, unpretentious and affordable oil and watercolour paintings, easily purchased online and inexpensively shipped by post.
