Cornwall Paintings

Beautiful coastal art, seascapes, waves and surf of Bude captured in my Cornwall paintings.  The north coast of Cornwall has long been shaped and battered by the weather drawn across the Atlantic ocean.  I have always lived here and my days are spent walking, admiring the ocean, watching the skies and recording those images to memory to be recreated in paint back in the studio. 

 Painted in acrylics and oils and professionally framed, they are a lifetime gift of memories, or special family pieces as well as beautiful artwork for your home. 

I work in various sizes and on canvas, board and aluminium.  If you’d like to make an enquiry about a painting feel free to give me a call or send an email via the contact page.  You are also most welcome at the studio.
