Welcome! Thank you for visiting my website. I hope you enjoy seeing and finding out a little more about my paintings. You can follow my work through Instagram and Twitter via @Sketchbookstokes and I am always happy to receive feedback and enquiries.

Every passing year is a rotation of colour here in West Penwith, Cornwall, and this is endlessly inspiring to me. These oil paintings of gorse bushes were inspired by seeing the bleak and blackened winter shrubs erupting into a blaze of coconut smelling yellow petals like tiny flames in April this year.
