' I love your work, full of movement. atmosphere and confident use of colour ' 'your work is so full of energy and life'
... recent comments .

perhaps the best comment of all was in my first exhibition at Harbour House Kingsbridge, on a gloomy wet November morning, a visitor commented that my painting of a Spanish village made her ' want a glass of cold white wine'

My work is inspired by the landscapes in which i live and visit, these include my home in West Cornwall where the land meets the sea . The Isles of Scilly, the Shetland Isles. the Hebrides, Ardnamurchan, Scotland and Dartmoor . I love these wild places and work in the open air with the wind, the sea and the elements all playing a part in my response to the place.

working mostly in mixed media, I use charcoal, watercolour, oil, acrylic and ink. Sometimes I work large scale on the beach or the cliffs, but I also do tiny watercolour sketches to catch a fleeting change of light or colour. Colour is my primary focus and I am exploring levels of abstraction, feeling that leaving something unsaid gets me closer to feel of the place.

I regularly have work in St Ives society of artists Open exhibitions
this autumn I have a painting in the exhibition at Penlee house, penzance. Penlee Inspired is an exhibition of work inspired by the collections and exhibpitions of penlee house
