PETER HEDD WILLIAMS
Painting / Paentio
Peter Hedd Williams is a local artist based in Gwynedd. His paintings and drawings are greatly inspired from the views found here in Snowdonia National Park. From the rugged and dramatic beauty of the mountains to the equally magnificent and ever-changing coastline.
Peter enjoys nothing more than immersing himself in Snowdonia’s splendour, which is majestically penetrated throughout his work. He has truly captured the colour and energy of this dramatic landscape in a contemporary abstract style using a minimum colour palette with oils.
From an early age, Peter has always had a great love for art. His father and grandfather took great pleasure in drawing and painting. Their passion has been a profound inspiration for his work. Peter went on to complete an A Level in Art at School and spent a year studying Fine Art at Bangor Technical College. Life then took Peter in a different direction where he developed a career as a chef and started raising a family. Some years passed and whilst working as a head chef at Castell Deudraeth, a colleague knowing that Peter used to draw requested a portrait of her child. This triggered a new beginning for Peter and he has been unable to put the pencils and brushes down ever since. Peter was the first artist to exhibit here in a solo exhibition in the summer of 2018 and we are thrilled to welcome him back to the gallery with his latest works based on the local coastline.
