I draw inspiration for his paintings from the landscape and culture of North Devon and Cornwall where I live and work, in particular the cliffs and beaches of the North Cornwall coast where I often walks with my wife and dog. My paintings have been exhibited at a number of galleries in Cambridgeshire, Devon and Cornwall currently at Seventh Wave Gallery in Bude and the Chase Art Gallery in Wadebrige.

Having worked in watercolour for many years, I made a change to acrylics in an attempt to achieve stronger colour effects and a more emotive atmosphere consistent with the rustic feeling of my work. The settings of my paintings are often real but once work begins their treatment depends less on physical reality than on an intuitive, emotional response to the place, ‘painting from the heart not the head’.

Amongst my many influences are folk art from around, the illustrations of Edmund Dulac and the paintings of visionary landscape artists such as Samuel Palmer and Caspar David Friedrich.

Often described as ‘quirky’ and ‘charming’, I hope my paintings have a tranquil, soulful atmosphere but, not satisfied with the frozen moment usually depicted in landscapes, I try to incorporate into the scene a suggestion of movement, of something about to happen often suggested by the presence of birds or dogs.
