The vibrant collection, featuring landscapes and abstract portraits from the thespian who hails from Margam, Port Talbot, will consist of 38 paper and seven acrylic canvasses plus five limited edition prints.

Hopkins has spoken of his love of painting, saying: "When I paint, I just paint freely without anxiety regarding outside opinions as criticisms. I do it for sheer pleasure. It's done wonders for my for my subconscious... I dream now in colours".
