“I fell in love with Cornwall, and the sea. Being lucky enough to be in a rowing crew I get to see the coast from the sea too. The ocean is an endless source of inspiration; the winter seas and storms offer up a palette of opaque greys, greens and purples. The summer takes us through open clear skies and sparkling translucent waters putting those turbulent winter times behind us.”
