Classical Cornish promenade town and my home since 2005


About the town

Penzance is my hometown. Lorraine and I have been here 16 years and we moved from Brighton. Lorraine is a Cornish lass and has so many connections here. When we first moved I thought it was a bit of a scruffy place and the people dressed very down and dowdy. Nothing much changes there but outside influences are appearing. It is a stunning place to live and I don’t know where to start. Maybe the new Prom that got battered in the storms and has just been built and where I love to paint in the warmer months or the beautiful Morrab Gardens where I also love to paint.

Oil painting is a slow process because you have to wait and be patient when adding layers it is however worth the wait as the finished results are worth it.


Gouache is bright and strong and is great for working out doors for fresh immediate results and is easy to transport and work with and that's why I just I love it


I like to take acrylic painting out with me when I am plain air painting but only occasionally as I now paint mainly in oil. I love acrylic and I also love oil
