About the artist

Hi, welcome to My Views Gallery, my name is Jonathan Morris I was born in 1980, I grew up in Briton Ferry which is a stone's throw from the stunning Gower Penninsula Swansea. As children my mum and grandmothers would take my brother and I to many of the Gower's beautiful beaches where we would spend hours on the golden sands picnicing and surfing the waves rolling in from the Atlantic. At the time I probably took for granted some of the incredible scenery that we had on our doorstep, however I recently started to rediscover some of these places and have been inspired to collate a number of paintings of mine and I'm sure a lot of your favourite views of the Gower and South Wales area. I hope that you enjoy my work, if you would like to leave a comment or would be interested in purchasing any of my paintings or if you would like to commission me to paint your favourite views then please email me at jonathanmorris32@yahoo.com or follow me on Twitter twitter@myviewsgallery
