What my blog is about

This blog is an attempt to write about what I do. I am a painter and sculptor. As a painter I work mostly with oils, mostly on canvas, but sometimes on board or other media. As a sculptor I work mainly with clay but, again, occasionally in other media.  In all my work, as it says on my website, I “endeavour to capture the spirit of things or places I have known, seeking to illuminate aspects of the world that have captured my imagination – to evoke feeling”. That is genuinely in my mind as I work.

I love the sea and I love harbours, and an important theme in my paintings is coastal scenes. I make frequent trips to the North Yorkshire coast and to Norfolk and Cornwall. Most of my seascapes emerge from those experiences. As an example, I recently completed the painting below as one of a series of Porthleven in Cornwall, where I stayed last summer. The work is in oil on canvas and measures 50cm square.
