I grew up in Padstow,North Cornwall with the Atlantic Ocean on my doorstep so it comes as no surprise that this has influenced me heavily as i progressed in my artists career,although not formally trained i have painted from a very early age the different moods of the ocean and the moors . My interest lies chiefly in trying to interpret and represent the wildness and unpredictability of the sea,Working in Oils and Acrylics i start with an idea and evolve the work from this.
My work has been exhibited widely in Cornwall and various parts of the UK and i have been fortunate to be graciously collected by an ever growing band of patrons.

I have been a full time painter for some 10 years now and love every minute of it,even getting wet in the rain,watching several hours work run down the canvas.
