Watergate Bay is my home from home, and nothing compares to surfing its turquoise, azure and green waves on a sunny day. I bumped into Naomi on the beach one day, photographing those exact breaks, and she agreed to paint my waves for me. I couldn't have imagined the painting would so realistically evoke the emotions I feel about the sea when I'm surfing. The translucence she draws out in the colours is unbelievable, she has an amazing talent. So happy, Watergate Bay Forever!
In addition to my pet portrait work, I also create seascape paintings. Living in Cornwall, and spending a lot of my free time in the ocean, I'm never short of inspiration. I'm blessed with stunning beaches and a rugged coastline right on my doorstep. I love to see and experience the ocean in all her varying moods and seasons.
All my seascapes are painted using professional grade oil paints on cotton canvas. The fluidity of the paint, and long drying times mean that they're the perfect medium to recreate scenes of the ocean. They allow for colours to be beautifully blended, creating the illusion of movement and light. The varying textures I can achieve allow me to create highly detailed paintings with depth and realism.
I love painting energy, movement and colour, and for me the sea encapsulates that perfectly. The ocean is never static – it’s constantly shifting, tides moving in and out, winds changing the shape of the waves, colours transforming as the light rises and fades, waves curling and frothing; I love how it can look so dramatically different in the space of just a few hours. My paintings aim to capture a snapshot, showing the beauty of the sea in all its various states.

I have a range of seascape paintings available as limited-edition giclée prints. Each print is professionally produced and available in three different sizes. If you're looking for an affordable way to brighten up your house, or perhaps that perfect gift for an ocean lover, then look no further!
