A bit about me.
Hello and welcome to my website, I am a contemporary painter working in mixed media and oil paint.
I live on the border between north Cornwall and Devon on an old farm, now a 'retirement' home for a mix of animals, primarily horses and donkeys. I adore painting them often using colours that might surprise you, and always trying to 'get under their skin' to capture the energies of these funny, beautiful creatures.
As well as my animals I am constantly pulled to paint the normal, the everyday, faces of friends and family, the common place flowers and plants that often go unnoticed and unobserved, the places I inhabit daily. Always exploring and experimenting with the energy and emotion different colour palettes can create.
I hope you enjoy browsing through the collections, and if something takes your eye, you can purchase direct from the shop.
Commissions are also welcomed and monthly payment plans are available.
I understand you might not want to buy any art at the moment, but I'd love for you to stay in touch. You'll get the occasional blog or email telling you about insights into my world/art, exhibitions and new series of work.
