The beauty of the sea is ever changing in light and mood from the gentlest of ripples to the most powerful of crashing waves. Like most people I feel connected to and fascinated by the sea. I now include rivers in my love of water. Water, in all its forms, has the ability to sooth, be a source of fun, and food, yet it has such awesome life changing power. Most of my paintings are inspired by the coast of Cornwall, a place I am connected to and visit often. Others inspired by other coasts and rivers I have visited.
