'Ray Howard-Jones My Hand is the Voice of the Sea' by David Moore was published on 27th June, 2023. It is the first substantial illustrated biography to explore the life, work and legacy of outstanding Welsh woman artist Ray Howard-Jones (1903-1996).
War artist, sea painter, mosaicist, community theatre pioneer, poet and Christian mystic, Ray's outstanding achievements were made despite life-threatening illness and innumerable accidents. Once renowned, yet now sadly neglected, she is associated particularly with the Second World War in south Wales, the spectacular Pembrokeshire coast and exceptional mosaic murals in Cardiff and Edinburgh.
Each period of Ray's life and work is covered in-depth through chronological chapters in this extensive new book, fully illustrated with over 200 images from collections including National Museum Cardiff, the National Library of Wales and the Imperial War Museum.
The book is £35 with a £5 PP charge - please email if you would like to order one of these books.
