Latest exhibition - Royal Institute of Painters in Watercolour, The Mall Galleries April 2022 

I live in Lympstone, Devon and find my home location an inspiration for work.  I am interested in our human desire to leave land and the ways we find to do this. Swimming in the estuary, I am always aware of the moment my feet leave the ground. I was born on a boat to parents who lived on the water. 

 

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 in gesso, ink, gouache and watercolour; 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.

PAINTINGS AND PRINTS

In my current collection 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. A selection of my artwork is available at The Seaglass Gallery and Tryptich Gallery. Some of these works were shown at the Mall Galleries  as part of the Sunday Times 2020 Watercolour show and the Federation of British Artists 2021 show.
