charcoal drawing by Maff Harris

Maff Harris is a local artist from Newport. Predominantly working on landscapes, he is inspired by the South Wales environment he has spent his daily life traversing; both built and rural.


Gwiath Cymsyg looks back at the last 29 years of his art practice, with a mix of works on canvas and framed works and sketches going back as far as 1993.

His art practice covers a variety of mediums, from traditional painting to more contemporary pieces that explore composition. 

His most recent works began in lockdown with an oil on canvas painting:  Allt-yr-yn Waterscape.

He has continued to be drawn to water and has just completed a series of four paintings capturing the Ebbw river.

Oriel Fach - Brenda and Louise Horton

Oriel Fach is the brain child of Lou Horton. A gallery for perfect gem-sized works of art.

It is (probably...) the smallest gallery in the UK.

This month Lou has teamed up with her mother - Brenda - to give us some tiny treasures - none bigger than10cm squared.

Brenda Horton has brought her fine art needlework to Oriel Fach with 4 textile landscapes using fabric collage and embroidery.

Louise Horton has made 7 tiny paintings based on the idea that there are new organisms in the cosmos which may not have even been discovered yet or are still to evolve!

At Ffwrwm we want to promote new artists and those living and working in Wales...

and we proudly support community arts.
