Welcome to Cornwall Studios
Inspired by emotions, I’m trying to capture those feelings and put them down on paper - the essence of an experience, be that riding a wave or a cold water swim under a crescent moon! The ocean pulls me the strongest, but a babbling brook or a tranquil lake half way up a mountain can elicit a beautiful response too! If I can successfully translate that feeling into a visual format, then hopefully a seconds glance at the image can transport you to that moment in a similar way that a smell can.
During the first Lockdown in 2020 when I found myself looking for ways to express the emotions that I was experiencing from not being able to spend time in the ocean, Cornwall Studios became the perfect opportunity to try new mediums and subjects. Having been a freelance commercial illustrator for the last 20 years, I was predominantly a digital artist, but when I picked up a paint brush again, something cracked open and spilled out - rediscovering paint, pencils, paper and canvas re-awoke that love of getting messy in the medium, and creating art just for the feeling it ignites within!
Well, all that, and also not being able to use my surname, because of a well known surf brand, hahahaha!!!
