Lorraine Voss (BA Open) lives in Llanwrtyd Wells and is an intermittent creator of art and poetry. Her artwork is frequently inspired by the human face or form. She is also slightly obsessed by the soothing and mildly meditative state she finds herself in while painting Indian style, mandala patterns.
A resident of Llandovery for over 40 years Lon began painting about 15 years ago … at first using watercolour before going on to experiment with oil and acrylic to produce atmospheric landscapes and seascapes. Lon enjoys painting the stunning views of the Pembrokeshire coast and takes particular pleasure in painting the striking landscapes of the Tywi Valley and the Brecon Beacons.
