“There is nothing like staying HOME for real comfort.” ~Jane Austen
Over the past many months the world has been halted and humbled by the pandemic known as Covid 19. Everyone on the planet has been affected, and everyone, regardless of age or cultural background, has had to alter their lifestyle in some way. For many it has meant more time at home. The subtle question of “Where is Home and What does Home mean to me?” has continuously surfaced in my artwork over the last several months. In this collection of work, I have shown snippets of the places, animals, fruits, vegetables, trees, and flowers that have sustained me from home.
Anharad Llewelyn has called the Northshire “home” for 35 years where she raised a family, and thrives on teaching art to students from Pre-K-adults. She teaches art at Long Trail School and creates work in watercolor, acrylic, and mixed media collage from her home in Manchester.
Are not the mountains, waves and skies a part
of me and my soul, as of them?
Is not the love of these deep in my heart
with a pure passion?
George Gordon, Lord Byron
I have spent a great part of my life in the Adirondack Mountains of New York State and my inspiration comes from the mountain and lakes that are so familiar to me. Living in Vermont I love painting the green valleys and mountains that surround me here. My summers are spent in both places, hiking and painting en plein air.
After earning an undergraduate degree in psychology, I studied at Montserrat College of Art briefly before life events sent me in a different direction. Along the way I earned a graduate degree in education and worked as a teacher in Massachusetts and in Vermont. I am grateful to be painting again and for opportunities to exhibit and sell my work.
