Former Steps singer Ian 'H' Watkins has launched a new career as a painter.

Watkins, originally from Cwmparc, Rhondda Cynon Taff, found fame with the pop band in the late 90s before they split in 2001 and then reformed.

Now, 20 years after he went to art school, the 38 year old has picked up his easel again.

His work, including more than 30 paintings, will be displayed in a debut exhibition at Ffin Y Parc Gallery, near Llanwrst, Conwy, on Sunday.
