I studied Zoology at Sheffield University and then moved into research at Cambridge for a couple of years. The training made me very aware of my surroundings and I love to analyse every detail of nature.
Later, I learned about colour, design and art history through my experience as an art and antiques dealer and during that time I began painting and drawing. Now in Cornwall I have a large studio which gives me the opportunity to experiment but I do love painting the sea.
When preparing for a painting I work outside, sketching and drawing speedily so that my response to the surroundings is immediate.
My paintings are available from the online gallery White Court Art and they also hang in the two well known Cornish hotels and eateries The Old Coastguard and The Gurnards Head
I have an extensive studio which is always open to the public.
I am fortunate enough to have a studio gallery here in Tregonebris where everyone is welcome.. All of the work on this website is available for sale unless otherwise stated. Please contact me for more details.
And as an added extra Simon and I have just finished converting the workshop into an antiques showroom and gallery. For more information regarding the showroom please click on
It is great to mix contemporary art with antiques and to go back to our old trade. We hope to launch the whole enterprise with a bit of a do at the end of September
It took a bit of work but we now have plenty of space and the paintings sit well in the showroom.
