About Me

I am inspired by the relationship each individual has with their environment: I love the clarity of feeling when I am looking out to sea; the way it can evoke memories, relax, welcome and surprise you. I want my paintings to reflect the way a seascape can draw you in and involve you in its constant and ever changing movement. The shades and tones of blue shift with time and seasons and I love observing how the sea and sky reflect each changing time and mood.

I began painting seascapes while studying for my Fine Art degree at Bath Spa University and I have been evolving and developing my techniques ever since. I am now living in Falmouth, Cornwall, and my surroundings are constantly inspiring to me.

I begin a piece of work by taking lots of photographs of a specific seascape and develop sketches and paintings from these. I take commissions and use a particular location to produce an original painting.
