About Me

I'm a Cornish based artist and photographer inspired heavily by the Cornish coastline and my experiences in the surf.

My Art

My art often holds a graphic quality stemming from my training as a graphic designer at Falmouth University. Being a keen surfer with a passion for the Cornish coastline means that my art is often influenced by the sea, nature and the coast.
 
My 'Surfscape' series depicts some of my favourite Cornish beaches. They show dreamy surf conditions and clever use of light, creating an idealistic image of Cornwall's famous beaches.
 
I also enjoy working in collage to create abstract compositions. Using found paper, vintage books and magazines (often found at local car boot sales), my collages combine contemporary ideas with materials from the past, this gives rise to interesting visual juxtapositions.
 
I sell my work through my website, in selected shops and galleries as well as at markets and fairs. I also take on commissions, so please feel free to contact me with your ideas.

My Photography

I grew up with an obsession for bodyboarding and bodysurfing and this obsession has clearly continued into my adult life. I get a real kick from swimming around with my camera in a heavy shorebreak or on a barreling reef.

I try to capture images from the perspective of a surfer. This involves getting myself and my camera into positions in the sea that most would avoid. Often I capture my best images moments before being tumbled violently by the waves. Despite the wipeout, I always surface with a smile!
