Biography / Statement

A marine archaeologist and former occasional illustrator by trade, I began painting about a year ago. My work takes inspiration from marine archaeology, from the work of marine illustrators of many periods and from my own observations of the sea and the ships that sail and have sailed upon it. My aim is to produce paintings that are fun and that have a unique visual language. Increasingly I am also trying to imbue my work with something of substance, from human emotions such as fear and remembrance to the complex way that the sea moves.
