I have been painting for ever! Or it seems like it. I taught art at secondary level for several years before starting my own business designing stencils and using specialist paint effects. For the last 10 years I have concentrated on painting and In 2006 opened Spindrift gallery in Portscatho to showcase not only my work but that of a number of artists and craftsmen working in Cornwall and in particular The Roseland.
We now represent artists with a wide range of skills and sell paintings, prints, hand painted items and cards, quirky animal sculptures, ceramics, marquetry, driftwood lamps and mirrors and a wide range of jewellery in our gallery overlooking the sea.
Much of the work is exclusive to Spindrift. From practical and useful, to unique and beautiful decorative pieces. The one thing we all have in common is how we are influenced by the sea and the beautiful surroundings in which we live and work.
I was born here and it was important to present work conceived and produced as locally as possible. My paintings, predominantly of the Roseland reflect the cliffs and coastline of the area. This theme is echoed through the selection of work in the gallery.
We are open throughout the year. Opening times vary during winter months. Please telephone 01872580155 or 01872580636 to check.
