Iwan Gwyn Parry was born in Anglesey in 1970. He completed his MA in Painting at Chelsea School of Art & Design, London in 1993 before returning to north Wales, where he lives and works. From an early age the North Wales coastline has played an important part in his life and many of his paintings feature that landscape and seascape. However, he is keen to point out that his paintings are not topographical illustrations of specific places, but only references to his local landscape.
