We are proud to display works by fabulous local artists throughout the hotel public areas and bedrooms, many of them offer a tangible and very real sense of place:


Robert Rattray – artist and sculptor
Robert Rattray was born in Ireland and brought up in Wales. After studying sculpture at the City and Guilds of London art school for four years, he has been working professionally since 1994. His work is increasingly recognised by collectors with commissions in the UK, Australia and America. Portraits and animal pieces both sculptures and watercolour drawings, provide the backbone of his work reflecting his passionate interest in wildlife and his rural roots. He works both form London and his local studio in Wales.


Nigel Forster – photography
Nigel is a landscape architect turned photographer. In 2009 he opened Creative Photography Wales, and since then dazzled with amazing photographs of Wales. He has always had a passion for the outdoors, the mountains in particular, travel and for landscape photography. Although his photography comes mainly from Wales, he also shoots a cross section of places elsewhere in the UK and the world. He specializes in pictures of familiar places and people in imaginative ways, using natural light and the strengths of the camera to best effect.


Jantien Powell – painter
A very local artist, based in Llandewi Rhydderch, just a couple of miles from the hotel. Jant's work reflects the people and places in her surroundings. She is inspired to paint faces and scenery that she knows and understands. As well as painting she runs a teaching studio with a variety of painting and drawing classes, textiles and photography.


Capel Tenison – sundials and armillary spheres
Capel has been making sundials for over 15 years. His reputation for meticulous attention to detail lays testament to why Border Sundials armillaries adorn gardens worldwide, and his stand at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show often sees him return to Monmouthshire with a gong or two. Each handmade sundial is personally hand-engraved by Capel to your instructions and then finished to the highest quality. Personalised sundials make the perfect gift for any occasion with names, dates, mottos, coats of arms or company logos hand engraved.
