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 Fowey River Gallery, along with a host of venues, including The Cove Restaurant with Michael Caines, Trebah Gardens, Bedruthan Hotel, Pizza Express Falmouth, The Old Quay Inn and Norway Inn, among many others selling a range of my limited edition prints..
More recently the emphasis has been on painting the incredible scenes and views within our beautiful county of Cornwall.
