Was this the most challenging place I have given myself to paint in yet?

Out on the open sea under cover of darkness in the rain, swaying around on top of the wheelhouse of a pilchard boat - a Cornish sardine boat working out of Newlyn.

As part of my new series of paintings looking at sustainable inshore fishing I wanted to get out in the boats and paint alongside the fishermen; in this case on The Pride of Cornwall.

Nerves, excitement, gull scream, diesel and fish stink, fantastic!

Over the years I’ve worked with a number of different filmmakers and editors – documenting my work and practice through the medium of film, for the purposes of television and galleries. Each film aimed to put the creative process and concept into context to show the making as well as the reason behind the work.

This year I felt it was time to look back over all those painting projects captured on film and to choose some of the best to represent all those different bodies of work. This choice will endeavour to show the dynamic and diverse journey my work has taken over the last ten years and into the future.
