I am a teacher of Art and Photography, my degree is in Fine Art – Painting.

My seascapes have been developed from drawings and paintings produced from observation in Cornwall. I love the dramatic nature of the sea and the continuously changing beach. I am particularly interested in how the land meets the water, the reflections in the pools of water, the marks and textures left by the tide.

An important part of the process of developing my ideas to work with a variety of media and techniques, such as printmaking, collage watercolour, inks. For me this time spent investigating is vital for creating successful paintings.

I am currently working on a new set of work inspired by the landscape locally, I am using my Facebook page to record and document the work as it progresses.
