Rollington Barn

From the coastal town of Swanage I am an artist who mainly works in oil. (but if the mood of the subject demands it, I will occasionally turn my hand to water colour or acrylic)
I am inspired by the sea that surrounds the Purbeck area, the countryside that pushes right up to the edge of the fascinating local terrain. Framed by magnificent cliffs and coastline features of the Jurassic coast and coupled with its history of industrial activity and maritime wildlife, the area is an infinite source of interest and inspiration.
I think there is a quality to the light of the South West coast that is distinctive.
The way light falls across the ever changing mood of the surface of the sea and interacts with the landscape, provides an element of uniqueness that is a joy to witness. I currently work from my studio at Sandy Hill Studios, Corfe Castle.
Exhibiting throughout the UK. Inc. London (Candid Arts foundation Gallery). Recent solo exhibition at The Wharf Gallery, Tavistock.
