Coast, creativity & cwtches ….

  • Original oil painting of Pembrokeshire coastal cliffs on deep stretched canvas

Welcome to my website, I hope you enjoy discovering a little more about me and my work.

I specialise in painting colourful skies stretching over coastal headlands with the colours reflected in the sea and wet sand – inspired by my life in Pembrokeshire. My style is bold, expressive, full of movement, shape and texture. I have a passion for rich colour and use this to express feelings in my work.

I paint from the heart.

I am so excited to share my explanation of my work in the Artist Statement below. Check out my Portfolio for images of past and present work.

2023 promises to be a sensational year, with exhibitions in London, St Davids Cathedral, the National Park Gallery in St Davids, Picton Castle, Oriel Q and Tregwynt Mansion. I will be busy completing children’s book illustrations and teaching batik, oil pastels and acrylic painting to Pembrokeshire based art groups.

Artist’s Statement

Coastal living is the foundation of my work – whether it be stormy seas, dramatic light and shadow, stretching vistas to the horizon or just my fascination of the natural edges between land and sea. I am surrounded by fresh air and the textures of nature – how can a painter fail to be moved !!

Music is my ‘mood’ inspiration while I paint, to help me capture my emotional response. My work is unlike a photograph – it represents a more personal vision of the subject through the techniques applied, chosen colours and textures. So it should be no surprise to know that the following artists influence my work : Cezanne, Monet, Van Gogh, Chagall, Klimt, Pollock, Matisse & Hundertwasser. I work mostly in oils and acrylics and I always enjoy making the most of a happy accident.
