I've lived in Cornwall for almost all of my many years and been lucky enough to enjoy its diverse and beautiful, wild Atlantic coastline. With my family I've spent countless days exploring the beaches, coves and rocky headlands along the north coast and the pretty fishing towns and idyllic estuaries that line the south coast. I grew up on the water, pottering about in boats and paddling out on surfboards in the summer months and in winter walking the coastal path being battered by cold, grey mizzle and the ferocious westerlies. It's weather like this that shapes the Cornish people and inspires the imagination.
As a young man I studied at Falmouth College of Art and then went on to gain a Degree in Fine Art at Liverpool University 89-92. I've worked as a website and graphic designer ever since and in the past few years I've also rediscovered a passion for photography and enjoy clambering about on cliff tops, moorlands and around harbours finding new ways to connect with the landscape.
The images are influenced and connected by a love of the sea and the rugged Cornish coast, creating simple compositions with flattened perspectives and a pallete taken from the blues, greens and greys of this beautiful part of the world.
