By Karel Lek

Duration: 04:21 mins

Your comments

"Karel Lek has always been part of the Tudor Rose & Beaumaris for me, he gave me a print when I left for New Zealand and his work is still as good as ever." Sherida Lee.

"Just bought one of his paintings at Oriel Tegfryn, Menai Bridge. I admire his style of painting. Hope to be able to buy some more of his work." Gwyneth Campbell.
