Every passing year is a rotation of colour here in West Penwith, Cornwall, and this is endlessly inspiring to me and endlessly delightful to my two dogs. These oil paintings of gorse and woodland were inspired by seeing the bleak and blackened winter shrubs and trees erupting into a blaze of tiny petals and leaves of light and colour at the return of Spring

All of my paintings are derived from sketches and drawings made outdoors. Always at my feet are my scruffy little dog Truffle and his gorgeous taller companion, Woody. I have the greatest joy capturing the landscape and my furry friends and I invite you to share my joy by purchasing something special from my range of original paintings, drawings, fine art prints, cards and gifts.
