I am lucky enough to live and work by the sea, a constant source of inspiration.
I have always painted and continue to try new techniques using watercolour, oils, acrylics and anything else that comes to hand.
My current practice revolves around the theme of coastal landscapes, based on the far south-west of Cornwall and my local Stokes Bay. There is something magical about the boundary between land and sea, between sea and sky. My paintings reference the shifting unpredictability of these boundaries. They are organic and atmospheric, often tenuous, rather than topographical representations. They are a phenomenological response to being in that landscape, in that moment, with the prevailing light and weather.
I was awarded Cornwall Life Landscape Painter of the Year 2016
