Spending many years living in Devon, Start Point Lighthouse was always a great place to visit. I decided to paint the scene in calm weather because it is a really stunning place when the weather is being kind.
From a young age, I developed a fondness for wildlife and dramatic landscapes from spending lots of time in woodland around Horsham and visits to the South Downs. As I got older, my interest grew and trips to Snowdonia and The Lake District really cemented my love for the great outdoors, inspiring my art today. Capturing dramatic landscape scenes, often in moody weather; I paint using oils, in a bold, loose realism style.
