Black Mountain Gallery is a family business started by Muriel Williams and Mark Lloyd Williams (Who are mother and son) back in 1999. We operate from a cluster of old industrial buildings at the edge of the Brecon Beacons / Bannau Brycheiniog National Park in Wales, UK. We have collectors all over the World
We originally ran as a traditional gallery, but as we became busier and our collectors came from a wider and wider area, we eventually became "online-only" This allows us the freedom to concentrate on creating artwork.
Pretty much everything we do is done "in-house" from producing our own giclee prints to hand-pulling etchings and silkscreen prints, even the framing is all done here at our own carpentry shop. We work with trade production partners to make items we can't, such as mugs and T shirts.

Yes, our style is very distinctive ! This classically painted AK (Not finished image) is now somewhere in the leafy suburbia of the Home Counties of the UK. The limited edition run of prints sold out ages ago, sorry.
