In 2008, I moved my studio to St Ives. Where often starting en plein air, I will work on my oil canvases out on the coast or moorland always striving to commit to paint my emotional response to the scene. Using a palette knife, brushes and my hands I will build up layers, both impasto and scumbled. Strokes of colour are laid next to each other largely unblended depicting light and shadow. This technique allows the vibrancy and energy of the painting to be retained when viewed as a whole. Working from the starting place of abstraction, some of Cornwall’s most iconic landscapes are then drawn out into sensitive and atmospheric paintings.
Please visit my website to view available paintings or follow me on facebook for the latest news.
I am happy to answer any questions and visits to my studio in St Ives can be arranged by appointment
Visitors are always welcome and I have a great coffee machine! “
