I am a Cornish artist who has spent many years developing my unique style, so that today my work is instantly recognisable. I firmly believe that my art reflects my personality - I am known amongst my friends as someone who has a naive innocence with a tendency to see the world in a slightly different way to most people! My personality traits are quite often apparent in my work. I am truthful and direct which people can find a little disconcerting! I portray my images in very much the same way - they are what they are; not confined by rules or convention. I recognise that I can possibly be a little impatient and this is one the reasons why I enjoy painting with quick drying acrylic paints. I am also a bit of a perfectionist and this can be seen in the quality of my work - "I've never been afraid of hard work and if something is worth doing, it is worth doing well." I feel lucky that the hobbies which I enjoy in my free time, contribute towards my intense enthusiasm for painting. The photographs I take whilst walking and kayaking become the reference material for my work. "I am so fortunate to live in the wonderful County of Cornwall, surrounded by the sea, and with so many beautiful rivers and landscapes to take inspiration from." Although I had a solid grounding in art many years ago, the individualistic techniques I use now have been self-taught and developed over many years, and I feel this has been advantageous. My style has not been moulded but has evolved. It has not been influenced by the work of others but has become uniquely my own by the processes of practice, development, persistence, trial and error.

Artwork

Just perfect. It cheers me everytime I look at it. Can almost imagine I'm at Mousehole on a sunny day. The sky is beautiful and the colours so fresh.
