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.
Every year I join in the Open Studios event in May and also organise a themed show in our large gallery showroom.
In the autumn I exhibit at the Crypt Gallery, St Ives.
All future dates for shows and exhibitions will be posted on social media and have a dedicated page here on my website.
I am fortunate enough to have a large studio 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 our workshop into an antiques showroom and gallery. For more information regarding the showroom please click on
It took a bit of work but we now have plenty of space and the paintings sit well on the walls.
