I have been fortunate enough over the last few years to have my work exhibited and sold at art galleries in St Ives, previously by the Penwith Gallery and currently by the Porthminster Gallery. The latter currently represents my works in oil in West Cornwall. Both galleries have a rich history and are known internationally for their collections of 20th Century Modern artists' works, and I am delighted to see my work displayed and sold alongside that of Wilhelmina Barns-Graham, Sandra Blow, Eduardo Chillida, Terry Frost, Barbara Hepworth, Peter Lanyon, Alexander Mackenzie, and Ben Nicholson, as well as the best contemporary art that Cornwall has to offer. With such illustrious company one cannot help but be inspired.

My relationship with the Porthminster Gallery has been particularly rewarding, over 50 paintings having been sold through them in my first year alone.
