London based, Carys explores abstract concepts of science in visual form and places it in conjunction with artistic interpretation. Her work takes a primary focus on collage which inspires painting and installation to transform spaces.
A key element to Carys's work is mixing colours. Only using the primary blue, red and yellow, black and white, Carys creates unique colours for each work based on colour theory.
Mainly working on canvas to draw and paint, Carys has previously created 3D installations. Creating images to fit a 3-dimensional space completes the creative process in full circle.
Born in Cardiff and studied up until the age of 18 through the Welsh Language, Carys then started an Arts Foundation course before attending a few years at the Falmouth College of Arts. Carys completed her Fine Art degree at the University of Gloucestershire which taught observation and drawing skills complementing a self-study studio practice.
Carys now works for an insurance company in London.
Carys plays the piano and violin, and is a member of a local amateur symphony orchestra. From the age of 6, both instruments were particularly influential to Carys' learning and development and notably inspires some of her artwork.
