ARTIST

I live in the estuary village of Lympstone in East Devon. Having been born on a pinnace on the Thames where my family lived, it has felt like a homecoming being among boats again. This waterside location has increasingly influenced my subject matter. I enjoy exploring effects of translucency, layering colours as glazes. The village is one of the few in the area where there is still small scale commercial fishing. My practice is partly to document this activity while it still exists and to record the ebb and flow of life that revolves around the harbour.

PAINTINGS AND PRINTS

In my current collection of artwork you'll find watercolours inspired by the Exe estuary, life drawings and a few sketchbooks. I also have a range of Giglee prints and greeting cards available.

Taking a materials-led approach we focus on one particular art material for the duration of each course. Expressive and formal techniques are covered.
