Synopsis

All the Colours of Light by Carolyn Davies, Lynne Bebb

A stylish non-fiction account of the work of artist Mary Lloyd Jones. A Welsh adaptation is also available, Enfys o Liwiau. From a young age Mary always knew that she was born to draw and paint. She absorbed all the sights and sounds around her, the marks left by mining and farming, her great-grandmother's quilt design, and the mysterious tales of the local storytellers. -- Welsh Books Council

Reviews

Mary Lloyd Jones is one of those artists who has a particular resonance with the public. Her vibrant colours, her use of line and ancient writing, and her themes having to do with the transforming of the Welsh landscape and folklore, her attention to detail and love of layering make her an ideal artist for introducing children to the glories of painting. This beautifully produced book, available in both hardback and paperback editions, concentrates on Mary Lloyd Joness techniques, but also gives us wonderful reproductions of her work. These pictures (and some fabric work) glow, sometimes with light and buoyancy, and sometimes with mysteriousness and darkness, and Key Stage 2 children (and older) will surely respond with inspired work of their own.Included in the book is a time-line of the artists life, her world-wide exhibitions and her work

About the Author

Mary Lloyd Jones is one of Wales' most popular and established artists. Born in Devil's Bridge in 1934, Mary trained at Cardiff College of Art and has exhibited widely both at home and abroad, including solo shows in New York, London, Cologne and Oslo and recent shows in Italy and Spain. Inspired by the Welsh landscape and, in particular, the man-made marks on that landscape, her bold expressionist paintings are particularly noted for their use of vibrant and rich colour. Her work is included in many private and public collections including the National Museum of Wales, National Library of Wales, National Assembly for Wales and the Arts Council collection.
