As a child living on the North Cornish coast, I was always surrounded by the amazingly
beautiful Cornish seascapes and landscapes. We lived not far from St Ives with its
famous art community where we would often visit as a family to enjoy the wonderful
paintings on display in the galleries there.
I believe these things began my life-long love of all things creative
Now, lucky enough to live on the beautiful Dorset Jurassic Coast, I love the ever
changing colours and textures of the coastline and countryside that surround me and
find constant inspiration in them, just as I did in Cornwall,
Some of my work will show that I was trained as a graphic designer and during my
career, my work included design for print and animation, artwork for the film industry
and design in other fields, all of which required a graphic style of work.
Recently I have tried to break free from these inbuilt design related restrictions,
and produce a freer style, far looser, even totally abstract at times.
I love the possibilities that modern technologies offer and find myself experimenting
constantly with computer related techniques and new mediums and materials, sometimes
successfully, sometimes not!
