BIOGRAPHY

"I am from a Cornish farming family and for as far back as I can remember, I have loved being in the open air being at one with nature. Roaming cliffs, beaches, woodlands and creeks was the backdrop to my childhood. As a young boy I felt drawn to painting and was inspired by my mother who was also an artist.

At the age of 19, I moved to London to study Art at the University of Westminster. From there I went on to Central St Martin’s School of art. After 5 years, I yearned to return to Cornwall to do what I loved most – paint. I learnt my craft of painting en-plein-air whilst in London. The Thames, Richmond and Kew Gardens were all favourite haunts. Moving back to Cornwall in 1998, I quickly established a good reputation with many sell-out shows to my name. In terms of painting, I am at my happiest when working outside en-plein-air."
