Bert Evans studied painting at Newport under the guidance of people such as Selwyn Jones and Jack Crabtree.

"In my paintings, I never set out consciously to make the everyday special but I realise the things that I notice and find interesting are often overlooked by others," says Bert. "So if I can persuade others to look again and share my enthusiasm a little, then I feel I've achieved something. Moreover, it's the effect of light on a subject that really drives me into the studio each time. Working with a limited palette of colours and economy of strokes helps me to achieve things simply and directly."

Bert exhibits in several galleries in south and south west Wales.
