Landscapes From The Trail
This new page will soon feature a gallery of my trail and landscape art, in the meantime here’s a quick arty intro!
Making art has been at the heart of my creative life since I was a young child. I went on to study painting for my undergraduate degree but for my masters I made a lot of installation art (I studied at Falmouth School Art, now part of Falmouth University), drawing, though, has been my first love throughought.
I’ve been interested in various subjects but it’s my landscapes and natural history pieces I’d love to share with you here – I hope you enjoy them.
Here are a few pieces, mostly sketchbook drawings old and new, to whet your appetite while I take some decent photos and put the gallery together!

A sketchbook study made on a walk close to home
Fox and Flies is an old chalk drawing that I still love. I found this beautiful fox cub on the roadside.

I’ll be back soon with some better images! Have you signed up to my newsletter The Extra Mile? I publish some of my work there from time to time but plan to make it a more regular feature – why not come and see what I get up to? (It’s full of hiking news too, obviously!) There’s a subscribe form just below – I’d love to have you along.
Thanks for reading and happy hiking!
