I am an artist based in the Chagford, within the shadow of Meldon Hill. I have studied with a number of influential landscape artists in West Cornwall and at the Newlyn School of Art. Living within the boundaries of Dartmoor National Park it is not difficult to be inspired. I love to paint landscapes that capture the unique atmosphere of Dartmoor and the natural beauty of the Chagford area. Dartmoor's weather is unique; the cloud formations are captivating. I aim to capture the vast skies, expressing the sense of freedom you get when walking on the open moors. I choose to paint in oils (and occasionally mixed media), using various methods. I get a feeling of how I want to paint a scene quite quickly; a gut reaction to the view and surrounding environment.
