Abstract Beach is inspired by the beaches of Cornwall and the North Devon coastline with its golden sands and turquoise seas. This painting has lots of texture with abstract brushstrokes and pallet knife work in the sea and on the beach. Also shows the sky reflecting in the thin film of water washed up on the beach.
As a Teignmouth based artist I am close to the south west coast.
I graduated with a BA (Hons) in Fine Art in 2008 at the University of Plymouth.
I like to work in oils because of their versatility. You can layer the paint so that it has a translucency. Also It is so robust a medium I can scrape the paint back or scratch into it too.
I have exhibited my paintings throughout Devon and I gained an award at the Exeter Short Film festival. My films and photographs have been exhibited on the South Bank, London and in Italy.
I am a member of the Devon Artist Network and an Ambassador Artist for the English Riviera UNESCO Global Geopark.
