About GweddusArt

  GweddusArt

I try to paint every day, inspired by the beautiful scenery around my home in South Wales.

My name is Brenda and I work under the name of Gweddus.
Gweddus is a Welsh word which can mean "becoming" and as my name is Brenda Cumming (or B.Cumming) I thought it would be a good choice for when I came to live in Wales in 1996.
I also have a user name of "teabreaks" because I love my cup of tea.

I spent most of my life as a knitwear designer but my hands started to get arthritic and so I turned to painting to give my hands a break. I still love to design knitwear and I like to knit and crochet in the evenings when the light is too poor for painting.
I have had a lot of patterns published in the past and I still like to create new designs. I even had a two page article about me in a knitting magazine.
My mother taught me to knit when I was just 6 years old and the first item I made was a pair of fairisle mittens that I sold the same day.
There was no looking back once I realised that I could make something and sell it.
When I left school I worked for a time for a well known Yarn spinner and learnt about designing. I then went on to teaching knitting and other arts and crafts at adult education centres in the Greater London area, and I ran regular machine knitting classes and crochet classes.
I also love to make greetings cards......we crafters love to try all different crafts !

I love to sit in my lounge looking out across Swansea bay and painting .
My favourite media is watercolours but I also like acrylics.
I like to paint aceos, which are miniature paintings that measure just 2.5" x 3.5" and I also like to paint larger paintings, although still small at 8x6"....sometimes larger but not often.
None of my paintings are planned I just grab a brush, get some paint and "go for it!".
All of my paintings are originals from my own imagination.

.Each of my paintings is different and unique.
In the evenings when the light fades, I either knit crochet or make cards.
Every day I make something .........life is too short to sit and get bored.
I hope you enjoy my work as much as I do in creating it.
