I have always loved to paint

I get my inspiration from the West Country countryside. I particularly love the coast, and what could be more spectacular than the northern edge of Exmoor, or more beautiful than the rugged cliffs of the Lizard. Whenever I can and in most weathers, I like to paint and sketch outdoors. For oil sketching I keep my equipment to a minimum and use a Guerilla pochade box with a carbon fibre tripod. Most of my work now consists of finished pochade paintings and studio work based on my sketches and photographs.

Lizard Art Co-operative

I am a member of the Lizard Art Group, which is a co-operative of artists who mostly live and work on the Lizard Peninsula in Cornwall. They have a permanent gallery at Trelowarren which opens from Easter to October and I am exhibiting there.
