Shown here is a selection of my work. I love to paint with bright and vibrant colours using bold illustrative imagery. I’m often inspired by the sea, I love watching it’s ever changing mood, energy and colour. Following this theme I have recently started to create unique, hand painted sailboats. To complete the boats I make the hulls using driftwood and reclaimed wood, most of which is collected form the beautiful Norfolk coastline.

The sails are made from hardboard and are lightly sanded and primed, before I begin creating the original hand painted design. To achieve a permanent and light fast colour I work in acrylic and indian ink. Each sail is then given two light coats of matt varnish to provide extra protection.

Commissions 2017

This was a family commission for their three children.

This was a commission I took during Open Studios.

When the couple came to collect their boat they donated a couple of pieces of beautiful driftwood they had found on a recent dog walk.

Commission boat Sept 17

I was really pleased with this boat commissioned during Open Studios, I even managed to use reclaimed wood for the mast and boom.
