  Featured Artist - Denise Connell

Llyn Peninsula

The Lost Sock


Denise was born in Yorkshire but has lived all her life in South West Wales. She works from her studio in Llanelli producing paintings in watercolour, oil, acrylic and pastel. She feels she has two artistic styles. The first, she believes, has developed from her interest and ability in photography, which has given her a strong sense of design and picture making. She constantly composes from what she sees around her. The second results she confesses, from her love of daydreaming. This leads to paintings which are directly from her thoughts and which are coloured by past experiences and influences. As a child she discovered what she now knows to be Art Deco and this combined with a love of mythology and with the naive influence of artists such as Henri Rousseau and Slobodan of Nice results in paintings of a unique nature.
