… I had just found a lovely building in Padstow, set about refurbishing the shop downstairs and started work in the second floor studio. I had also invited various old friends to exhibit here, and there were pictures stacked up against freshly decorated walls, ready to hang.
An amazing decade has flown by. I didn’t know anyone in the town before moving here, and people have been incredibly kind. Life quickly took unexpected turns: taking up rowing with Padstow Gig Club, and being adopted by Fluke, my lovely lurcher. Unexpected subject matter too, as, having painted coastal landscape for years, I started to explore the cliffs and bays of North Cornwall, and discovered the rock formations that have become the main focus of my work.
Now we are preparing to celebrate the last ten years and look forward to the next chapter. I would like to thank everyone who has taken an interest in the gallery for their friendship and support so far.
