Arwyn studied art under the late Peter Wilcockson RCA at Newland Park College of Education and went on to be in charge of art in a junior school, for 35 years before taking early retirement.
His work has been shown in more that forty venues up and down the country and originals are held in private collections in several countries.
Arwyn has a passion for the colour, form and spaciousness evoked by the Derbyshire Peak and the coast.
He uses colour to reinforce the immediacy of first impressions and to emphasise spatial awareness and sense of place. By accentuating those elements caught in the play of light he recreates the scene with a heightened sense of depth.
Sometimes he allows for and colour to evolve, (seeking to portray the raw forces behind the scene) resulting in a rather abstract impression.
