BIOGRAPHY

My work has evolved from a great passion of exploring light, colour and texture. With Impressionism and the natural world as a constant inspiration, I create richly textured oil paintings using only a small painting knife.

Working with a sculptural approach I aspire for the viewer to feel embraced by the scene, and just for a moment, stand by my side to drink in the view.

I work with an insatiable energy in my personally designed studio, situated in the heart of the Tamar Valley and have had the fortune to sell work worldwide.

Living and working in the heart of the Tamar Valley in Cornwall, I am surrounded by the very landscape that inspires me everyday.

Each year brings new adventures, in 2019 I had an interview with Laura Joint for Cornwall Life Magazine discussing receiving the Visitor Choice Award from the Royal Arts Prize alongside artist Jo Holdsworth. In recognition of this award, Jo and I held a fabulous exhibition in March 2020.
