I love using saturated colours or simple black and white: colour conveys emotions, reactions, tensions, moments in time that are experienced but not seen. Using line for life drawing lets me practice optimum co-ordination between eye and hand, free from thought expressed in words, allowing for a universal language.
Simply inspired by the love of the sea, especially the wild and rugged coastline of the far west of Cornwall. From the beaches, coves and cliffs, I will make sketchbook studies, before returning to my studio, to develop and produce my final paintings, and drawings. Working mostly in water mixable oils, charcoal and graphite.
I exhibit regularly in the south-west and all works are available to purchase direct from me or Artizan Gallery - simply get in touch.
