The Affordable Art Fair 2018

What a weekend! Thrilled to be showing with North Coast Asylum at this great art event on Hampstead Heath. There are still a few works available via NCA ...

The work shown with NCA is a continuation of my series inspired by beach scenes in Hawaii and Cornwall, as seen from the air.  These colourful  scenes capture the playful conversation between the human activity and these extraordinary environments, where sun and sea and surfing bring all the good vibes. These are joyful studies of places that bring me great happiness.

There are a few works from this series remaining, please contact North Coast Asylum for a list.

Hawaiian Tropics

This place ... Waikiki Beach, as seen from the air - captured by drone. Images like this make my work as an artist so much easier! What a place and what an incredible view.

In February 2018, I was invited to travel to Hawaii to make a series of paintings for an exhibition at the awesome concept store Aloha Superette. This opportunity was the catalyst for a once-in-a-lifetime tropical adventure and dream surf trip.... As well as a great source of inspiration for a new series of paintings... coming soon!

As you can imagine, the inspiration levels were (quite literally) sky-high and it was a fantastic experience to work with the fabulous folks at Superette and a great opportunity to meet so many amazing Kailua locals. I was also lucky enough to collaborate with fellow aerial artist & surfer Bree Poort

A Traveling Artist

I make art which reflects my experience and response to extraordinary places.

I am drawn to the colour, light and variations of the sea and I will always be captivated by the rolling tides, wild weather and changing seasons - especially when seen from above. Following my trip to Sri Lanka at the end of 2017 (see more here), I decided  I wanted to see more of the world to inspire new collections of work and continue my development as a Traveling Artist - and I'm lucky as I can set up a studio almost anywhere ...

Hawaii 2018!

January in the UK isn't the best month (once you've exhausted the winter walks in Cornwall and fire-side Sunday pub lunches in London) and, as inspiring as the wild weather is, I just can't get enough of that turquoise ocean ...  

So ... I've given the studios a spring clean, packed my paintbrushes (and surfboards) and I'm hitting the road for an adventure in Hawaii - this is a totally new location for me, but I have a feeling I'm going to enjoy it!

I'm also working with a fantastic team of Hawaiian businesses and locals who I can't wait to meet in person : Aloha Superette, a concept store; Earthy Andy, amazing health and wellness goddess and I'll be continuing my Artist in Residence programme with The Surfjack Hotel - a boutique beach-side residence in Waikiki.

Keep track of my adventures via Instagram and check out my blog - lots of new work to follow x

SRI LANKA

Earlier this year, I spent a week with the good folks at Ceylon Sliders, a boutique hotel, cafe and haven of yoga & surf at Weligama, Sri Lanka. I was invited along as their Resident Artist and the experience was incredible! The colourful people, beautiful views and amazing waves made it a magical trip. I can't wait to share new work, which has been inspired by this special place. Coming soon ... for now, take a look at the film made during my stay!
