Escape Artist

Painting for me isn’t just about earning a living, which is obviously essential, it’s also about escape. When I’m painting I can be totally absorbed in what I’m doing. That’s part of the joy. I can travel virtually anywhere in my imagination, even back in time. recently I’ve been re-visiting some of my London experiences by painting The Embankments in London, and London street scenes, while remaining in the relative comfort and safety of my studio in Cornwall. I know how fortunate I am to be able to do this especially now, when so many of us are locked down.

My Embankment paintings are on show at The Barnes and Henley Fine Art Galleries.

Together with some more tumultuous stormy sea scapes.
