"14 years painting landscapes in Cornnwall"

Following recent exhibitions in Sidmouth and Ilminster, I will shortly be having a solo exhibition at The Brewhouse Theatre in Taunton, from 12th October to 28th November.  Work is also at Karensa in Padstow, Cornwall.  In November I will be exhibiting at Exeter Castle with the South West Academy.  In December my work will be showing in Bridport.
I am running a course at the Brewhouse Theatre and Gallery in Taunton for those who want to develop their art. The course also includes portrait sessions. Anyone who would like to join the course should contact the Booking Office at the Brewhouse on 01823 28324.

Welcome to my website
I was born in London. My father was an artist and I have been drawing and painting all my life. I love both landscape and portraiture, for which I take commissions.

For the past 14 years I have been painting the Cornish landscape, which is moody and dramatic. I have been working primarily around the Camel Estuary, the coastal scenery of Rock and Padstow, the North Cornish coast and Bodmin Moor.
Following a move to Somerset in 2015, I am enjoying discovering a new landscape around the north and south Devon coasts, the Blackdown Hills, the Quantocks and the Mendips – a new focus on trees, woodland and softer farmland. But I continue and will always continue to go back to Cornwall.
I work mainly in acrylics, which I love for their versatility, on canvas, watercolour paper or board.
My work has been exhibited in many galleries in Cornwall, Devon, Dorset, Hampshire and Somerset.

I am an Associate Member of the South West Academy and a member of Creative Coverage.

Please browse my website and do contact me if you would like to buy a picture from the gallery or if you are interested in a commission.
