We took a trip up into the Preseli hills today to choose a painting by Linda Norris from her gallery in Maenclochog. The road up into the Preselis is very nostalgic for me from the daily school run. Every turn familiar but so rarely driven these days. In the low winter sun the hills looked magical.

Linda’s work is very much of Pembrokeshire. Many of her pieces remind me of rock blasted by thousands of years of wind, rain and salt. They have permanence, yet capture the transience of sky and sea that defines this area.
