This is the work-space that I share with painter / illustrator Gabrielle Hawkes in St Columb in the heart of Cornwall.
Our move to St Columb has for me meant finding a lot of fresh inspiration for my paintings and drawings. The wooded Vale of Lanherne is enabling me to begin getting to know the huge potential that trees hold for me as a theme with an immense range of expressive possibilities. The town itself intrigues me as well, with its hilltop location and fascinating variety of buildings. I’m excited too about the possibilities of Castle-an-Dinas as a central location within Cornwall from which a huge variety of vistas can be explored, towards the coast, towards the moors, the clay country and so-on.
