Welcome to my Website
My name is Kevin Williams and I was born and raised in the South Wales village of Taff's Well which is 6 miles North of Cardiff and sits under the gaze of the Garth Mountain. This website goes someway to reflecting the influence that growing up in this beautiful area has had on me and I hope you will take as much pleasure in sharing my art as I have had in creating it.
Art Classes at Fagins Craft Beer & Art Cafe
I set up my art class, based in my gallery in Fagins Ale and Art Cafe in early December. It is based on 10 week terms and costs each participant £12 per session. I have had 9 wonderful art lovers in my class and I have to say that the whole experience is fantastic. We are currently at week 8 and so far we have covered: the fundamentals of drawing, composition, colour theory, subject/themes, painting techniques, watercolours, oil paint, acrylics and charcoal drawing.

Exhibition Comes To a Close
Huge thanks to all the people who supported my 'Both Sides of the River' exhibition in Fagins, Taff's Well. Met so many people over the two weeks and I definitely have my work cut out with all the commissions. Hope to see you all soon at my next exhibition which we're already working on.
Hollywood Director/Screenwriter and Taff's Well born Chris Monger sends exhibition support message...
"The Garth Mountain and the village of Taff's Well were the inspiration for my film 'The Englishman Who Went Up A Hill And Came Down A Mountain' so it thrills me no end to see Kevin Williams' love of the area so beautifully captured in this exhibition. Looking at his paintings and drawings is to be taken on a guided tour, seeing the village through his eyes, and being reminded of the moments we've all spent, staring at the Garth, or pausing to look back down a lane, or at the way the sun catches the houses. I hope that he, and this exhibition, and his future work will all meet with great success."

Eleanor Smith | MP for Wolverhampton South West.
"Once I had awarded Kevin 1st prize in the Wolverhampton, Newhampton Arts Centre, ‘Paint the Day’ competition – I knew I just had to have the painting! It now hangs proudly in my constituency office".
“Kevin recently produced a commissioned oil painting of Castell Coch and we were absolutely delighted with the result. We can proudly say we now own a piece of art by 'the' Kevin Williams”.
Phil & Avril
"We contacted Kevin who promptly visited us at our home to discuss a commissioned painting. Very easy to deal with and ecstatic at the results. It's now a proud part of our family and heritage".
