Although I studied Graphic Design at Exeter College of Art & Design (1989), I really only started painting in 2012. I am a self taught watercolour painter and my paintings are generally very detailed. Not quite photorealism but close.
I take my inspiration from the countryside and coastline of Devon and occasionally from further afield. I have a particular fascination with seashells and other items I collect, that have been washed up from the surrounding shorelines and the Exe Estuary. Needless to say I have an extensive shell collection!
I’ve been exhibiting on and off since 2013 in both Exeter Open Studios, Devon Open Studios, local galleries and I have pieces in private collections in a number of countries.
