I am both a painter and textile artist. The brilliant combination of colour, light, texture, translucency and line are central aspects of my work. As a Cornwall artist I draw inspiration from the surrounding landscape and unique natural light.
My work is always related to the process of painting rather than the image. The artwork emerges from the interaction of marks I make on the surface with the colours and textures I use.
My relationship with the surface has a major influence on the way I make the work. What I paint has a lot to do with layering and finding paths inside shapes; the colour and lines describe my journeys through life to reach this stage as a Cornwall artist.
My paintings are commissioned works and become part of collections by private individuals, interior designers, architects and companies such as The Scarlet and Bedruthan Steps hotels in Cornwall and Combe Grove Manor in Bath.
Wearable Art: Some of my artwork has recently been selected for reporoduction on luxury silk scarves by American artwear specialist RozeNdove. Find out more here >

One of my lovely friends suggested I display it upside down
So tell me what do you think
Which one is better :) ... See MoreSee Less
Like it :)
I loved the first one because it is more lifelike through the movements of the waves. I would call it " safety shore".
