About me

First of all, I'd like to thank you for visiting my website and hope you enjoy browsing Danton Art. If you see something you like but it isn't quite what you are looking for then please email me, as I am happy to create that perfect piece of art that will incorporate your ideas and compliment your style and home.

My name is Cheryl Danton Perkins and I was born and continue to live in the Swansea Valley. The beautiful Welsh countryside and coast are frequently the inspiration for my work.

I love art and I have been painting since I can remember. I was encouraged by my parents and teachers at school to develop my talent as an artist. From and early age my work was selected for exhibition at local and national levels. I started selling my paintings when I was just seventeen and have continued to paint for family, friends and by commission ever since.

Inspired by Monet and Impressionism; I build my compositions straight onto the canvas by layering colour, incorporating texture and exploring light.

I work in a variety of media including oils, acrylics, pastels and pencil. You will notice that I explore different styles and techniques to create paintings of style that compliment the mood and content of the composition.

I'd like to thank my talented and thoughtful son Thomas for making me this web site and hope you enjoyed visiting.
