Cefyn is the son of a 3rd generation coal miner and grew up in a small mining village in North Wales.
His parents saw his artistic talents as a chance for him to escape the inevitable certainly of a life underground and for that reason they have encouraged him along every step of his journey.
Art college was the beginning of a London based career in illustration, working in the world of publishing followed by a comprehensive career in packaging illustration for major clients worldwide.
Cefyn now works independently, expressing his passion for image making in his own unique style. His influences range from the formality and discipline of classic Victoriana to the exhuberance of Pop Art. Cefyn follows a simple philosophy in his work 'Drawing is key'
