It's hard to let go sometimes when you've given hours and days of your life creating a piece of artwork. This is how I'm feeling as I prepare to pack and send a new commission piece...Dark skies is my latest creation. Of course I'll create something new and it's a familiar twinge of sadness just as when I show a new collection of designs.

For a short intense time it's all consuming; the act of progressing through each stage....working and reworking. There are ups and downs, but now it's finished and I'm satisfied, and to me, it's perfect :)

Yey!!!


I feel so pleased that my work will be included in the Imagine Falmouth Exhibition at Falmouth Art Gallery.


It's a large exhibition and will show a selection of established and emerging artists working in Cornwall.


I submitted LIFEBUOY- Custom House Quay (Falmouth) 30 x 30cms

It's one of a new series, it's strong and more abstract than previous work and contains elements of a view I see often. It shows a number of techniques I use both in my design work and sea paintings.


I really will sort out the gallery page soon...thanks for your patience! :)

My Gyllyngvase beach artwork, previously shown at the Falmouth Hotel has sold and the space has been filled by Porthcurno, a mixed media painting. It'sa fairly large piece, 100x120cms. £995

It is unframed on stretched canvas. An interesting play between the flat colour of the beach and black headland and the more realistic textural quality of the sky and sea.


As soon as more pieces become available I will show them here on the blog (until the gallery page is updated).


I'm currently focused on my current design project, however, there will be more new sea art to show very soon, so please check back over the next few weeks.

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.

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!

Hi,


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,

Stretched canvas

Chalk white painted floating frame.


£160 each or 3 for £450.


Now being shown at 2 Fore St, Mousehole, Cornwall.


Postage may be arranged, please contact me if you have any questions or queries.
