About Me

I am a very proud Cornishman, with a passion for my county and all the wonderful views and scenes within it, that we are blessed with on a day to day basis. My photo-realistic style is a result of my training in illustration at Falmouth School of Art and Design and subsequent career in London and Australia.

Since returning home to my beloved Cornwall, my time painting is split between my two favourite subjects – seascapes and yachting. 

I auction my yacht paintings at Christie’s in London in their maritime sales and have been privileged to have been given three front covers on their maritime auction catalogues including one front and back jacket for my America’s Cup painting (the only time this has ever been allowed) and an inside cover double-page spread of my Mariquita – Pendennis Cup painting. 

Along with this, I regularly exhibit with my London gallery – Rountree Tryon in their annual maritime exhibitions each autumn and I also have representation in the US with the Russell Jinishian Gallery.

On a more local level, I have representation at Beside The Wave Gallery in Falmouth and Fowey River Gallery, along with a host of venues stocking my prints, including The Cove Restaurant with Michael Caines, The National Maritime Museum and Trebah Gardens among many others.

More recently the emphasis has been on painting the incredible scenes and views within our beautiful county of Cornwall. 

My simple aim is to do justice to the beauty which has inspired people forever and continues to bring people back to visit (who are not lucky enough to live here), year after year. I’m fascinated by the nuances of light, from minute to minute; affected by the time of day, weather conditions, seasons and tides. The combination of these factors create an infinite possibility of scenes and moods, all of which can be pleasing to the viewer. Cornwall’s beauty is unquestionably stunning. If I can replicate it, my job is almost done . . .
