At least it ended well!
At least it ended well!
After completing a new series of designs I'm busy working on new sea paintings...in the meantime, here's a photograph of the beautiful and tranquil beach at Trelissick (near Truro) on a cool misty morning.
Absolutely no adjustments were made to this photo. Unbelieveble and beautiful colours at 10am.
My Gyllyngvase beach painting can be now be viewed and purchased at The historic Falmouth Hotel.
This painting has been previously exhibited in Events Square, opposite the Maritime museum and was printed onto postcards to raise funds for the RLNI. I'm currently working on expanding and developing this series of works to show other Falmouth beaches, St Mawes, Lands End...St Ives....I have much to do!
The Falmouth Hotel can proudly lay claim to the crown of ‘Grand Dame’, having been the first commercial hotel to be built in the town, back in 1865.
A striking, Victorian chateau-style hotel set in 5 acres of landscaped gardens, we enjoy a prime seafront location, overlooking Falmouth Bay and Castle Beach. On one side is Pendennis Castle, the headland, beach and sea and, on the other, views over to the famous port of Falmouth.
If you are visiting Falmouth I hope your time here is everything you hope it will be and the sun shines for you!

I can't believe it's almost the end of January....as I type this I am covered in paint and working on new Falmouth paintings, but I felt it important that it be known that I am busy creating new artwork. Each piece takes hours and hours to create my signature textural sea and can't be hurried. The HARBOUR WALL canvases have been a pleasure to work on and so I am developing this idea further and bringing an even more identifiable contemporary look to my paintings.
These are created between me designing new collections for the Swiss studio, and so for that reason alone are taking longer than I anticipated.
Anyway, it's nice to say "hello" but I'd better crack on as I have so much to do!
This series of paintings are designed to work as a triptych but are equally as strong as individual pieces and may be shown in various ways. Together as three, two or alone, they are a contemporary statement and a realistic seascape rich in texture and colour.
The cool grey tone of the three dimentional lined sky gives a sense of perspective and works in harmony with the realistic dark tones of a rough, cold, seascape. The textural harbour wall, with touches of yellow lichen, brings stability in terms of subject matter and as a strong visual element.
Plaster / mixed media
20x20cms canvas size,
Chalk white painted floating frame.

Now being shown at 2 Fore St, Mousehole, Cornwall.
Postage may be arranged, please contact me if you have any questions or queries.
Summer paintings will be shown at 2 Fore Street, Mousehole from Thursday. They are small but perfectly formed (20x20cm canvas). Each is presented in a white wooden frame. I am continuing to work on this series, so please check my blog regularly for new pieces.
Have a lovely chilled summer.
At first glance the paintings appear to be simple abstract stripes, however, with the plaster relief white lines adding a sense of perspective, and the strong textural surface of the wall in the foreground, I have created an element of realism.
These are modern, fresh, contemporary pieces which were a pleasure to create and I fully intend to explore the endless possibilities and develop the ideas behind them further. I'm curious to see where it wil take me....
Each canvas measures 40x50cms and is mounted within a white painted, wooden frame.
Summer is here!
It's been a while.....No, I haven't drifted out to sea, and yes, I'm still creating!
At times it's imperative that I immerse myself in design projects to ensure I show a beautiful and coherent collection to my customers in Scandinavia and Europe, and I need to continue to do this for the next few weeks. This works well for me, after which, I will be able to fully commit to producing fresh and new sea art. I have new ideas, still incorporating my unique sea texture, and I'm eager to explore them.
My paintings continue to be shown at TWO FORE ST, MOUSEHOLE and available to buy directly from the restaurant.
The two paintings currently being shown are St Michael's Mount (Morning mist) and White lines(St Ives)
Within the next couple of weeks one of the paintings will be replaced with one of my sea circles (Porthmeor). Please see my Sea circles page for more information on this series.
The St Michael's paintings have been so appreciated and enjoyed which leaves only a couple of this series available to buy.
I'll check in again soon...enjoy the summer sunshine :)
