I am currently focusing my energies on new artwork in homage to my beautiful hometown of St Ives. During this solitary period, I am extremely grateful that it is possible for me and my family to still be able to take daily walks. I am finding new inspirations to be joyful of each day.

The works emanating from these walks are melding the natural and man-made landscapes I encounter daily and also draw from what remains of the fishing industry. And, in these times, knowing there is so much sadness out there, the artworks are reflecting the almost eerie sense of stillness and calm that has descended upon St Ives.

Here is a sneak preview of my progress, alongside an image of inspiration.
