I Got a Distinction for my Masters at Aberystwyth School of Art!

I have just heard that I got a distinction for my MA in Fine Art (Photographic Studies).  Am delighted as left school at 15 with no qualifications!

The subject for my MA was the wild, remote area above Barmouth, North Wales, exploring the marks left behind by drovers and the gold miners.

There are less people living here now in the Rhinogydd than any time in human history and the area abounds with ancient stones, forts and tombs due mainly to the inaccessibility of the area and the extremely wild and rocky land.
