ARTIST

I live in the estuary village of Lympstone in East Devon. My parents lived on the Thames and having been born in the cabin of a pinnace, it has felt like a homecoming being among boats again.  This waterside location has increasingly influenced my subject matter. Since lockdown I've had to draw the perimeters in and now paint what is within a few minutes walk, swim or kayak from my front door. I love the endless potential for subject matter within this circumscribed space. I enjoy exploring effects of translucency, layering colours as glazes; methods that show what lies beneath the surface. The village is one of the few in the area where there is still small scale commercial fishing. My practice is partly an attempt to document this activity and record the ebb and flow of life that revolves around the harbour.
