Oriel y Parc’s current artist-in-residence has created a spirited series of paintings and relief collage depicting significant journeys across the rivers and seas in and around Pembrokeshire. Deborah’s inspiration is life in St. Davids, Celtic and medieval art, Welsh history, beliefs, landscape and people.
“Sea crossings are not only central to the story of Christianity and West Wales, but have also had a major impact on my life. I was born in America because my Welsh grandparents boarded the Aquitania, and crossed the Atlantic to New York, and a new life. And seventy years on, I made the crosssing in the opposite direction to come back.”
