I am a fine artist based in Torquay. I have a Latin-American background which influences my work. I relocated to Devon in 2007 and have been stimulated by the natural and man-made environment. Initially my paintings were focussed on the immediate surroundings of my cottage on a hill in central Torquay and incorporated pre-Columbian images into representations of the buildings and coast glimpsed from "on high". Of late, however, I have based my work on a six month study of Yarner Wood, East Dartmoor. The resulting paintings continue, in part, the theme of Man and the natural environment through the husbandry of the forest and the industry of copper mining but also reflect the changing seasons in a beautiful area of the moor.
