Chis is an accomplished artist who captures the local scene with a magical flair. In his spare time Chris teaches art especially during the winter months. A vist to Round Da Bay Inn is like going to an art gallery. You won’t be disappointed.

Ricketts' work is the kind of art we look for on trips, evocative of the location, imaginative and slightly abstract but still precise in depiction of fact and reality. Tremendous use of colour and form. We encountered his work at the Round da Bay Inn...More
