Thankyou for visiting my on-line gallery, I have tried to make it as simple as possible to use so everything is on this one page. Simply click on the links above to go straight to the section you wish to browse.

I am a self taught Pastel Artist living in Saltash, South East Cornwall where I have lived for the last 30 years.

I am inspired by the fabulous coastline and landscape of the west country which I frequently travel around gathering inspiration for my work which is predominantly in pastels though I often work in other mediums as well. Being a self taught artist, my style of painting has undergone a natural evolution from a fairly tight style to a much looser impressionistic interpretation of the Landscape and Seascape.

I now paint almost full time and have held a solo exhibition at “The Wharf” in Tavistock and more recently at the Ashtorre Arts Center which is located beneath the Brunel Bridge on Saltash Waterside . More exhibitions are planned in the future and my work will also be appearing in several galleries.

Looser Pastel and Mixed Media Sketches

Sometimes time is short so I work quickly getting ideas down on paper when inspiration strikes. I think many artists would agree that painting is 10% work and 90% inspiration and getting in the right frame of mind. When painting loose sketches, anything goes and I will often mix media to get an idea down. My favourite method is rapid sketching with marker pens and working over with Pastels or Gouache or even both.

I find it quite liberating to sketch fast and loose as there is no pressure and often the results are more pleasing then paintings I have spent several hours on.
