Ancient Yew Tours

Janis Fry's paintings are in acrylic, watercolour, ink and gouache, and mixed media. Sizes vary from 1 to 4 feet, in any one dimension. The paintings explore the emotional power of colour and are essentially bound up with the mysteries and mood of the natural landscape, the Tree of Life, other trees, portraits and mythology. She is concerned with light and dark, atmosphere and things half seen. Janis is fascinated by the boundaries between things and people, where one thing ends and another begins, by precise and indistinct edges, by merging, fading and emergence. An important motif is portals and ways through, between worlds and states of consciousness. During her career she has shown work in Paris, Bahrain, Piccadily, New York, Reykjavic and Wales. Janis's work is on view by appointment or current exhibitions. Commissions undertaken.

Ancient Yew Tree Tours
Tree Tourism. Wales is the country with the largest collection of ancient yew trees on earth.

This tour aims to introduce you to some of the best examples of these extraordinary trees. These yews occur in a relatively small area around Brecon/Usk, probably due to the culture of revering and planting yews which dates back to the Silures, the Celtic yew tribe who inhabited this area at one time and fought the Romans.
