Living and working in St Mawgan on the North Cornish Coast, my work is inspired by the beautiful coastal landscape that surrounds me. I love the textures, lines and shapes of coastal scenery. Big skies and seas, sandy and rocky beaches, streams, rockpools, shells and pebbles appear most often in my work. I like to make colourful, expressive and abstracted paintings which reflect my experience of and response to my surroundings. My paintings are 'about' rather than 'of' what I see. I hope that when you see my paintings you are immediately transported to Cornwall, can feel the sand between your toes and smell the salty air.
