Under the title of 'Sea Echoes Ocean Art', I have been producing various artworks influenced by the wonders and exotic creatures of the ocean. I have lived in St. Ives for over 20 years and have been enchanted by it's beauty, the beaches, the countryside and the deep blue ocean that surrounds the county it sits in.

My artwork consists of semi-abstract landscapes, in which I try to express the coming together of inner and the outer landscapes. I am especially drawn to the Cornish coast with its magnificent, rugged cliff scenery and its ever-changing light. Here I am in direct communication with the dynamic wildness and authenticity of the elements: water, wind and rock.

I have lived in St Ives since 1985 and became a member of the Arts Club, not because I can paint or draw (I can’t do either), but because I am a historian.
