 Andie Clay.... paintings
Now the alchemy begins to make sense as disparate strands begin to mesh together as if coming full circle, in response to, or maybe as an echo of, what has gone before.
When asked how long it takes to produce a painting my current response is 57 years 3months 20 days and counting...
Philip Clarke  ....Photographs
"Much of my work reflects my relationship with Pembrokeshire with studies of St. Davids, Pembrokeshire coastal flowers, a day in the life of Fishguard, the life of St. Davids cathedral, and the pursuit of communal pleasures at leisure"

Philip has a range of Pembrokeshire postcards
which are available around the County
