Growing up in St Ives, the Cornish environment provided endless inspiration. Drawing and painting has always been a way to express myself since childhood. I mainly use acrylic and mixed media to produce expressive and atmospheric paintings that reflect human emotion with the sea's rhythmic motion. Exploring its mysterious and sensuous nature, its origin as the source of life - its simplicity and complexity. I observe, remember and imagine; responding sensitively and intuitively, connecting with the ever-changing energy of the coast.
