Catherine Kennedy

Seascape painter based in Teignmouth, Devon. Fine Art Graduate Plymouth University and art ambassador for the English Riviera UNESCO Global Geopark. Large surfing waves of Devon and Cornwall’s coastline inspire her work. Another series explores the patterns and play of light created when the sunlight hits shallow turquoise water.


This painting is inspired by Fistral Beach, which is in Fistral Bay on the north coast of Cornwall. It is situated half-a-mile west of Newquay and is bounded by two promontories, Towan Head to the north and Pentire Point East to the south.As one of the world?s top surfing destinations, backed by high cliffs and sand dunes. Owing to its location, jutting straight out into the Atlantic Ocean, Cornwall is a magnet for swell. Combine this with its milder climate and a host of great beaches and you have the UK?s surf capital. All the big UK surf competitions take place here including the Famous Night Surf, Boardmasters Surf Championships, National Surf Championships, the Groms plus many more.

Here is a time-lapsed video of my painting process
