Olwyn Pugh


Olwyn says that art was always her favourite subject at school and she remembers even as a child that she was always sketching people, faces and animals.  Then her career as a nurse on maternity and special care infant units as well as bringing up her own family intervened leaving little time for her art.

"When I moved to Abergavenny in 2001, I joined the Art Group and attended life drawing classes at the Leisure Centre.  Inspired by Degas, I work mainly in pastel but I also enjoy charcoal, watercolour and more recently oils."

Once a month Olwyn attends the Life Drawing classes at Arts Alive in Crickhowell.  "It's good to share experiences and gain inspiration from other artists", she explains.


Olwyn is a committee member of the Abergavenny Art Group.

Exhibitions:

Olwyn has exhibited her work for several years at the annual summer exhibitions at Abergavenny and at Brynmawr.
