MA Art and Environment 2013

BA Hons Illustration 2002


I moved to Cornwall to study at Falmouth College of Arts where I subsequently fell in love with the rhythm that life and landscape offers here in the South West. During time living on the Isles of Scilly I started to explore what it means to belong to location and the synergy between man and land. This response to environment resulted in developing a visual language through painting and something I wish to investigate in different localities. My work is starting to split into two complementary streams, one being the immediate response to landscape documented through onsite sketches and paintings. The other a confluence of that stream with memories, energy and narrative leading to studio based work that explores a deeper connection to the elements. How landscape is read visually interests me, contradicting perceptions of scale, small spaces looking out to vast areas and the balance of separation and connectivity of earth, sea and sky.

Alongside being absorbed in my own work I am a tutor at Newlyn School of Art where I teach a painting en plein air course called ‘Coast’. Within this discussing technical aspects of material and structure in painting, demonstrating process and articulating energy and spirit underpinned with a foundation understanding of the physical aspects of landscape.
