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!

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!

In more ways than one! First of all a major edit of my website (thanks wife - owe you a pint or two), lots of new work added, lots taken off and more to come shortly. Secondly, a newly adopted pastel palette which looks great but takes more maintenance! Have a look at the Pastel title page to see what I mean.

Up in the studio, new paintings on the go with Bueno Vista Club to drown out the seagull calls as they take residence once again ... back soon!

In the last couple of weeks, I have been exhibiting in The Newlyn Art Gallery and the Newlyn Art Group Show and have started showing in a lovely gallery in Padstow, Beyond The Sea ... a couple shops down from Rick Stein's Cafe!! I did manage to find time to complete and add a new painting too ... Shimmering Water which is a smaller one.
