I grew up living next to the rugged coastline of St Ives. Creating art has always been a way to express myself. Observing and immersing myself in this wild and raw environment has nurtured my creativity. I endeavour to capture the energy of nature's elements and to communicate my experience of it. My process involves sketching, plein air painting, memory and imagination.; then taking these studies and creating larger paintings in the studio. I like to use the paint loosely with brushes, building texture with palette knives and other tools to conceal/reveal areas and produce spontaneous and dynamic paintings. I lean towards semi abstraction, playing with light and colour, conveying feeling and emotion. I regularly exhibit in Cornwall and was shortlisted for The Evening Standard Art Prize 2018.
