Inspiration

Porthcurno Beach Waves is inspired by the beautiful beach in the far west of Cornwall. Described by some as being a paradise, Porthcurno Beach has won many awards and it’s easy to see why. With gorgeous fine soft white sand washed by a sea that turns turquoise in the sun and high cliffs on both sides providing shelter, it’s an oasis of stunning natural beauty.

The large beach, popular with families, has a stream that flows down one side which is great for kids to paddle in and up on the cliffs is the internationally renowned Minack Theatre, built in the 1920s by theatrical visionary Rowena Wade and her faithful gardener, which you can visit all year round.

The fascinating Porthcurno Telegraph Museum, that tells the story of Cornwall’s role in the pioneering days of global communications, is located just before you get to the main car park. Cables from here were buried beneath the beach and then laid on the seabed all over the world.

Medium

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. This is another in my series of wave paintings which I started many years ago.

Background

I graduated with a BA (Hons) in Fine Art in 2008 at the University of Plymouth. My exhibitions have been throughout Devon and one of my films was been exhibited at the South Bank, London and in Italy. I am a Teignmouth based artist.

In conclusion, I am a member of the Devon Artist Network where you can see more of my work here https://www.devonartistnetwork.co.uk/catherine-kennedy-1 and a Geopark Ambassador Artist for the English Riviera UNESCO Global Geopark.
