NEW TO THE KOOYWOOD AUGUST 9th - 31st
NIA MACKEOWN, DAVID VIBERT and ADRIAN GREEN

Nia Mackeown was born in Pembrokeshire in 1986 and spent her childhood growing up in the welsh countryside. Showing a keen interest in painting from a young age, she studied Foundation Art at college before earning a place at a London University. However, a change in direction saw Nia become a midwife for 6 years during which time she spent her spare hours focusing on developing painting technique and life drawing skills. In recent years, her passion for painting has taken over and she now works full time as a professional artist, painting the things she loves, imagery of everyday life, of the endearing commonplace, and landscapes tempered with reflection and light.

Nia is the daughter of the artist James Mackeown, the granddaughter of Martin Mackeown and the great granddaughter of distinguished Irish artist Tom Carr.

David Vibert was born in Neath and studied at Swansea College of Art before going to the Slade School of Fine Art in London where he won the Fine Art Award for painting in 1959. He received a scholarship to study printmaking at Academia de San Fernando in Madrid, and then went to Paris to continue his printmaking studies at Atelier 17. He has exhibited widely in the UK and overseas with his work held in private and public collections in the UK, Sweden, Spain and the US.
After a career in teaching he retired in 1993, and now lives in Penarth where he continues his painting practice.

Born in Cardiff in 1967, Adrian Green graduated with an honours degree in Fine Art from Cardiff Art College in 1989. He has exhibited his work across the United Kingdom and as far afield as Japan.
Adrian's recent works have included city interpretations from working on location across Europe. This series of paintings captures vibrant, busy city life. Cities that appear in the collection include London, Cardiff, Bath, Florence and Amsterdam amongst others.
He works in various media,including pen and ink, watercolour and pastel. His interpretations are deceptively child-like, humorous and captivating, which he achieves in both detailed pen and ink and also in his use of bold, vibrant colours.
