St Ives, Cornwall is my home town, I grew up living close by to the rugged coastline and ocean. Creating art has always been a way to express myself since childhood; drawing and painting any subject that held my interest. The essential part for me is communicating meaning and my own experience of a particular place or situation, be it a landscape, seascape or figurative study. I regularly exhibit in Cornwall and further afield, my paintings have been collected worldwide. I was shortlisted for the Evening Standard Art Prize 2018.
