'Originally moving to Cornwall to Study at Falmouth College of Art I fell in love with Cornwall, and the sea. The coast makes me feel free and allows me to paint with the energy that it gives. The storms that have such an impact on our coastline offer up a palette of opaque greys, greens and purples. The summer takes us through open clear skies and sparkling translucent waters putting those turbulent times behind us. Returning to Cornwall is always a fresh and welcoming feeling'.
