Watercolour landscapes of Oregon and the Pacific Northwest, the Seascapes of Cornwall; and the Highlands of Scotland, and Minnesota's Lake Superior Shore and many other scenes are food for my brush, sometimes with wildlife or close ups of the small corners of nature, especially in my watercolour miniatures. The wilder parts of nature in all these places have always been of special interest for my art. Places like Bedruthan Steps, and Strangles Beach in Cornwall and anywhere in the Arrowhead Region of Northern Minnesota, or the Northwest Highlands of Scotland. Now - living in Oregon, after many many years in Cornwall I have new wild places to explore mainly with watercolour and gouache, but also in pastel or oil, and not forgetting the graphite with sepia ink and wash that fill my sketchbooks. All to inspire and create my art through nature. Welcome to my watercolour world.
