One Fine Day Teignmouth
Acrylic on canvass. I loved the light and shadows on Teignmouth sea front. This family stepped out in front of me and I loved the whole scene, this was many generations of family taking a walk as many of us do. I liked the fact the family was connected in the shadows as the mother was golding hands with the child and this is repeated in the shadow. This family connection means something to me. It was a bracing cold wind but that low winter sun captures my imagination. Wonderful!

Milo the bear swims under the waves. I have a fascination with Polar bears. I love the way their fur moves under the water. The way the fur reflects the colours around it. I see the gentle side of this massive predator. I feel at peace as I paint them swimming.

Acrylic on Board. I love the estuary at Topsham. This was while standing along the wall by the goat walk. I was watching the sun go down it was just mesmerizing! I love describing the mud, the colours and the textures as the sun reflects from its surface. The emptiness I find peaceful and you can find your own thoughts while standing infront of such vast beauty.

I am particularly drawn to the Exe Estuary having lived in Exeter for many years. I enjoy trying to capture feeling, light and reflection in my work. I am fascinated by shadows and the connections they make between people and places. I sell my paintings both locally and internationally. You can see my paintings at the South Gate Gallery in Exeter or make an appointment to come to my studio.I welcome commissions.
