2020 was to be the start of my year long art course at St Ives School of Painting, postponed till June 2021. I am looking forward to that, but first lets enjoy the summer fortnight with WOS!
My subject matter is the landscape. The sky, land and sea fascinate me: I love playing with their richness of colour and form. As a painter, I lean towards abstract and my challenge is to get beyond the obvious. I avoid paintbrushes using instead palette knives, credit cards, anything with which I can produce marks that produce a sense of movement and rhythm. My goal is to allow you to interpret the view as you see it and emotionally connect to it.
I am a self taught artist but I have benefited over the past few years, from working alongside some brilliant Cornwall artists; Anthony Garrett, Jessica Cooper and Kerry Harding, to name just a few of those that have inspired and encouraged me to experiment and develop my work. Open Studios is where I show the results. I will be sorry not to see you this year, but I hope that our virtual fortnight from home will bring you some pleasure. It is certainly my pleasure to have you see my work here.
