I am a graduate of Falmouth School of Art & Design where I studied Graphic Design. I am currently living and working in the historic town of Lostwithiel in Cornwall, UK.
The inspiration for my paintings comes mainly from Cornwall's amazing coastline and it's many moods, particularly around Gribbin Head on the South coast.
I worked for some years as a book Illustrator and then as a Photo-realist painter so my natural style tends to be quite realistic. Althouh, my current paintings seem to be a departure from this and appear rather abstract, they are in fact quite tight and realistic due to the rarely noticed delineated natural of the patterns on water.
I work in Oil on Canvas but usually on occasionally gesso-coated wood panels.
I have worked for major British, American and European book publishers, illustrating educational books. I have worked on private and commercial mural projects in the United States, Australia and Asia and my paintings are in private collections world-wide.
I have written for International Artist Magazine and was 2015 International Artist at the Great Gulf Coast Art Festival in Pensacola, Florida.
