Cornish Artist based in Penzance

Painting is my greatest passion. I have been an artist most of my adult life and take enormous pride in seeing my work being displayed in various homes and galleries across England and the world .


What's been going on

The life of a Penzance dwelling Cornish artist isn't all just about putting brushes to canvas. There's a whole eco-system of surrounding factors in an artists life that can have small to profound impact on the end results of my work. Here's a look into my life as an artist and some things I do to make the logistics of being a professional artist (at my age) still possible, in order to make a living and keep doing what I love.

About the artist

Painting the world as I see it

Creativity has always ran in my family.
My grandfather George Hann, was an acclaimed aritst and mentor to me.
My mother ran an oriental bazaar in Camden town. My son is a web designer and spray-paint artist and my daughter studies Psychology at university.

I was born in London and worked in hundreds of different jobs when I was young. My first foray into painting was when I ran a painting and decorating company in Brighton. With the money I made from this, I was able to begin the transition to becoming an independent fine artist....and the rest is history as they say
