Stormy Seas, Torquay is inspired by the winter seas and large waves that you sometimes get in right up to the seafront in Torbay. This stretch of beach is from Torquay seafront to Corbyn Sands beach. The painting shows large waves crashing onto shore, lit by the afternoon sun, turning the top of the waves a rich sap green and pale yellow. The blue sky is reflected off the choppy sea in the background.
Torquay is a seaside resort town on the English Channel in Devon, south west England. Known for beaches such as Babbacombe and cliffside Oddicombe, its coastline is nicknamed the English Riviera. Torquay Harbour near the town centre offers shops, cafes and a marina. Torre Abbey, a monastery founded in 1196, has art galleries and extensive gardens featuring plants from local writer Agatha Christie’s novels.
The English Riviera has 22 miles of coastline and a UNESCO Global Geopark, all of which can be discovered on the South West Coast Path, which runs along South Devon’s beautiful bay between Maidencombe in the north and Sharkham Point in the south.
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.
