My practice explores a fascination with the land and sea and the energy created as they meet...

Since moving back to Cornwall in 2006, I have been working on oil paintings which for the most part are painted outside in all seasons. The painting work is about pinning a canvas down and recording the elemental dynamic.

They are made over a series of visits to specific places and then taken back to the studio to be tamed.

Each painting in my latest collection is a celebration of the landscape in West Cornwall. The work I hope gives an idea of the intense colour, light and energy which abounds in this part of the world which is intensely exciting in all weather conditions.
