Welcome to my blog


I moved to Newlyn in Cornwall, in June 2013, with my wife, Tracey, our cat, Percy, and our pug, Gladys.  It is a realisation of a long term plan as whilst we weren't born here, we are both "Cornish at heart"!


I love being an artist, but it can be rather insular at times.  So to any artists, art lovers or coastal enthusiasts out there, please join in.  I have also linked this to my twitter account, which I update more frequently!

Having been lucky enough to do some teaching up country this year, I'll delighted to have been asked by the Porthleven Art Group to host a pastel workshop this coming Thursday.

Just started showing my paintings with The Tyler Gallery in the pretty fishing village of Mousehole in Cornwall. I'm very pleased to be showing in this lovely gallery!

Very exciting news! I have been asked to write an article on my pastel techiques for Jaunary 2017 issue of The Artist Magazine. It is a huge honour, especially as I am avid reader!
