Peter Welford is a contemporary artist, whose paintings hang in collections across the world. His wife, Judy, is a writer. They both divide their time equally between the running and restoration of Gwydir and their work. Peter’s studio occupies the two upper floors of the Solar Tower at Gwydir. He specialises in figurative, allegorical painting, employing a demanding early Renaissance technique which combines tempera and oil on panel. His graphic work includes illustrations for the Gwydir Press.
