Our epic swim from Mousehole to Perranuthnoe is over and we have, at last, published our book. Swimming Mount's Bay is a beautifully illustrated journal documenting 15 separate swims and is available in many local shops. See the New Publication drop down for stockists..

Over the winter months I like to experiment with paint in an effort to stimulate those creative juices.

All loaded up and ready to hang tonight for show opening tomorrow 13th October and on until Friday 26th. Very stormy here so should be fun and games running around the car park with large paintings!
