I am a contemporary visual artist, based in West Cornwall. My artistic practice is constantly evolving and my current focus is on the textural aspects of the landscape and coastline, and the way in which the paint itself contributes to the creative process.
Walking in the more remote parts of Great Britain including West Cornwall, North Wales, and the Yorkshire Moors, offers the opportunity to immerse myself in the landscape and explore elements other than the purely visual.
I am largely self taught but completed an MA in Fine Art Contemporary Practice at University College Falmouth in 2012, investigating the meaning of landscape and the process of painting. I am a member of the Oxford Art Society and CMR Project Space in Redruth.
CMR is an artist led project space, and my work there is focussed on contemporary practice including photography, video and painted installations.
