Morgan comes from a family with a strong tradition of painting. At school he won all the major art prizes. However, after leaving school he joined the army and painting became a hobby to be pursued only when time allowed. With the exception of attending life-drawing classes at St Martin’s School of Art and what he learned at school he is self-taught. Since retirement he has taken up painting seriously. He was until recently Chairman of the Armed Forces Art Society and he paints both landscapes and portraits in watercolour and oils. In 2005 he won the Painter-Stainers prize for painting. He particularly enjoys painting in Venice. He exhibits annually at the Mall Gallery in London as well as at galleries in Wales. His triptych of Christ’s Passion in the chapel of Christ College, Brecon is described in O’Kane and Morgan-Guy’s seminal work on “Bible Art from Wales” as “intriguing” and continuing the tradition of Augustus John and Margaret Lindsay Williams. Recently a royal collection acquired one of his paintings. He is receiving an increasing number of commissions and welcomes enquiries through the contact from on this website. His self-portrait is below
