“Evening Tide” is inspired by the beaches in Devon. This is one in a series of paintings examining waves and the Devon and Cornish coastline. I work with oils because of their flexibility. Oils can give you a translucent effect for fast flowing water or a matt and flatter finish for the spray.
I am a Teignmouth based artist and live close to the ocean and Dartmoor. This proximity to the South West Coast and the wild untamed landscape of the moor has influenced my recent work.
Water is an ever-changing element that I find fascinating. In my oil paintings I aim to invoke an immersive feeling. I want to highlight the rapidly shifting colours of water from deep blue almost black to pale green nearly white. Following the initial painting and drying process I may apply glazes of oil paint to further enrich the surface of my work.
I graduated with a BA (Hons) in Fine Art in 2008 at the University of Plymouth. I am a member of the Devon Artist Network and recently have been given the status of a Geopark Ambassador Artist for the English Riviera UNESCO Global Geopark.
