I love Cornwall, and some places feel like they are in my very bones.
It was in Porthleven that I had my first proper studio after college, in the old Net Lofts, overlooking the harbour. The second floor offered a great space , views and subject matter, if little warmth during the winter months. During those years , local people, the unspoilt Cornish village and coastline provided the inspiration for a lot of paintings.
A large commissioned oil painting, depicting Archangel Michael hangs in All Saints Church, in the the seaside village of Marazion . A place that holds precious memories from childhood of family of holidays. Even now, looking across the sea to St Michaels Mount , it remains a special sight, no matter what the weather or time of year!
