As an artist, I am constantly inspired by my surroundings in South West Cornwall. I love to draw and paint detailed scenes depicting little corners of the landscape which may have been overlooked. I want to show the character of this dramatic environment, drenched in that special Cornish light.
My aim is to make people feel a part of my artwork so that they can almost ‘walk into’ a drawing or painting, imagining what is just around the corner and creating their own story inspired by the piece.
For my fish called, ‘After the Storm Comes the Calm Porthleven’. I wanted to capture both sides of a working harbour and how it is affected by the ocean. One side depicts a raging and powerful storm buffeting the harbour and the other shows a beautifully calm and peaceful sea lapping against the harbour walls and glinting in the sunlight.
