Hafodunos hall is a Venetian inspired gothic style house, nestled among the trees in the quiet village of Llangernyw, North Wales. The hall was built in c.1861-6 to the design by Sir George Gilbert Scott for the Sandbach family at the cost of £30,000, and stands within an estate of fifty-three acres.

Plans were announced in the spring of 2004, to convert the hall into a luxury hotel and caravan park. Opposition came from the local people of Llangernyw and the debate over its future was still ongoing when the hall fell victim to a devastating arson attack on 13th October, 2004 that completely gutted the main block.

The gardens are severely overgrown and the hall lies in a neglected and ruinous state to this day after being purchased in November 2009 for £800,000.

How very Jane Eyre. Beautiful.

Cleopatra is one of history’s most alluring and mysterious figures. The original concept behind this painting, one of only a small handful of illustrated National Geographic covers, was to somehow express the myth of Cleopatra conceptually and avoid the constraints and difficulties inherent in being specific. With very little visual evidence to build upon, we wanted to show both her strength and character while at the same time evoking the mystery that has become synonymous with her legend and name. Although small pieces have surfaced over the years that tell us a little of what she may have looked like, there certainly wasn’t enough to actually recreate an accurate portrait. This was actually quire liberating, in that I was able to paint an image rooted more in an emotional quality than attempt to portray a single individual.

Although we planned to obscure her face behind the type from the beginning, I painted her head in its entirety. The jewelry references two popular myths that have surrounded Cleopatra for centuries: That of her death, by self inflicted snake bite, and the pearl which she supposedly dissolved in wine as a testament to her wealth and power. The structure and styling of the jewellery was based on designs present during the time of her reign, gathered for me by National Geographic’s excellent researchers. Although the image is a fictional one, the detail and surface nuance felt very important. No such statue exists, but the sense that one could, or did, I think lends the image a quality that it would otherwise lack.

So you were born backwards.
Your heart covers 80% of your skin.
It is huge—and it is fragile.
You don’t know how to chain-link fence your feelings.
You will find your trust abandoned and bruised on the side of the road—
Do not leave it there—
Dust it off and put it right…
