My wife and I moved to Porthallow on the Lizard peninsula in 2002 when I took early retirement from a career in industry. We instantly fell in love with the area and I decided to fulfil a long held ambition to start painting. Having had no formal training, I joined a local art class in 2004 and started what has proved to be a very enjoyable and absorbing hobby. I sold my first picture in 2007 and I was over the moon! We live in such a beautiful part of the world and I like to paint local scenes and try and capture something of the mood of the place.
