Landscapes and Dreamscapes

About Me

I am a largely self-taught artist and craftsperson living and working in West Cornwall, UK.


I have worked in acrylics across a range of styles, although my painting practice has lapsed. The sea is an important theme in my work, surrounded as I am on three sides by the ocean. The shapes I find in nature, geology and the landscape also fascinate me, as does the interplay of one colour against another.

I experiment in textured and erased surfaces interleaved with imagery which suggests a story, and explore the possibilities of paint application using both additive and subtractive methods.

Examples of other work are also here, I make pieces both new and found with pyrography, and also work in a number of craft disciplines including folk art, polymer and mixed media miniatures for dollshouses, and crochet design. Recently I have rediscovered ceramics with an emphasis on miniature vases, but I feel that some full size pieces will emerge in time.


Due to current circumstances I rarely accept commission work, please email me via the contacts page if you have a project to discuss.
