I am a Cornish born artist who started painting in my mid 40’s. I love to paint still life in oils. My style loosely follows traditional techniques, but with a more contemporary and vibrant feel.
I also paint in watercolour, preferring to paint detailed images of bees and butterflies on a looser, abstract, background, based on flowers.
I studied a figurative drawing class at Newlyn School of Art for a year, one day a week and I also completed a three day Modern Portrait course there with Jesse Leroy Smith.
