A Glimpse of Forest Life:

5th September until 11th October 2015

A new exhibition in Taurus Crafts café and conservatory, of acrylic paintings depicting places and wildlife of the Forest of Dean.

John Evans was born and brought up in South Wales and spent much of his life in the industrial areas of Newport. He had a variety of jobs including one as a crane driver in the steelworks before the closures. He has always had an interest in the arts both as a bass guitarist and as a painter.

“As far back as I can remember I’ve always loved nature and art.
Three years ago I was fortunate enough to move to the Forest of Dean and given the opportunity to combine both these pleasures.
The people, the places and the varied wildlife are a constant inspiration and I hope that through my paintings you too will enjoy a glimpse of forest life.”
