About me

I love where I live!  I grew up in Cornwall on the edge of Bodmin Moor and have always been inspired by what's around me.  I find constant joy in the change of seasons and the nature around me.  I feel the need to share my love for this very special part of the world which I do through the medium of paint.

“I love the moor, it's raw beauty and immensity and I want to try and capture the moment. The colours are always stunning from the bright, crisp winter skies to the muted misty autumnal vistas. The sea is a different challenge, the ever changing colours, the fact that one minute you can be painting in full bright sun and in the next sea mists are removing the view in moments.

I want to try and avoid a chocolate box style while still getting across the beauty of my local surroundings. I paint both 'en plein air' and from sketches and photos in my home based studio. The different processes have different results and styles.
