This website represents a small selection of the hundreds of paintings that I have painted over several decades as a professional and leading North Devon seascape and maritime artist. I was born in the mid sixties and have always loved creating art.
As an experienced studio-based artist, I paint in a traditional style and now work predominantly in oils: creating each painting with many fine layers, paying careful attention to light, shade, detail, atmosphere, mood, and colour interpretation in order to achieve a high degree of artistic realism.
I love painting and take great pride in my work. My years of experience as an artist enable me to produce beautiful artworks for people, which are rich with realism and detail.
I mostly work on bespoke painting commissions, but new collections of my artwork are released annually and are available at a few select galleries, and some are also available direct from this website. Please contact the relevant gallery (listed on the Gallery Representation page) if you are interested in purchasing one or more of my paintings.

Endeavouring to become eco-friendly as an artist
Oil paintings have always used plant-based oils, such as linseed, walnut or poppy. As a professional artist, I am committed to using artist products (e.g. paint pigments, mediums, thinners, brush cleaners,) which are sourced through natural and ethical processes and use plant-based oils while still maintaining high quality results. Eco-friendly packaging materials: I now use packaging products that are free of plastic and are recyclable and degradable when packaging my artworks for transportation to buyers, art exhibitions and art galleries.
