A little bit about me and my pastel paintings

I am a Pastel Artist living in Saltash, South East Cornwall where I have lived for the last 30 years. My pastel paintings and sketches are inspired by the fabulous coastline and landscape of the west country which frequently involves travelling around gathering inspiration for my work. My paintings and sketches are predominantly in pastels though I often work in other mediums as well. Being a self taught artist, my style of painting has undergone a change over the years from a fairly tight style to a much looser impressionistic interpretation of the Landscape and Seascape.

Although I frequently use other mediums such as watercolour, acrylics, oils and mixed media, my passion is soft pastels and I always find myself returning to them.

If there is a place in Cornwall that is close to your heart and you would like an original pastel painting, I do undertake commisions. Let me know on with the mail form on my contact page.

The Devon, Dorset and Cornish coast and landscape is truely beautiful and often very wild. If you ever visit, you will feel the connection that inspires me to paint.

Sketches and Mini Paintings

Sometimes my little sketches work out so well that I like them more then a painting that has taken 10 times longer to create so I have made a selection of my sketches available on this page at very affordable prices.
