A few years ago, while I was studying at Herefordshire College of Art and Design, I daubed acrylic, smoothed on pastels, crumbled charcoal and gouged and stamped lino prints endlessly. There was always one medium that I always returned to however. Watercolour and ink, with which I developed my illustrative style, although at the time I had no idea in which direction it would eventually lead me!
From a photo of a seagull on my mobile phone I created a painting that I shared with friends on social networking sites and within half an hour I had received four commissions! My career as an Artist had begun!
Since the original Seagull my inspiration always comes back to the sea and it’s ever changing and often dramatic scenery. My recent collection are Shoreham Beach scenes all depicting the stories of people enjoying time by the sea.
