“Night Wave” is one of the wave painting series I started 5 years ago. This has evolved into a collection of 50 paintings so far. This painting is inspired by the coastline of Devon and Cornwall. It shows a large wave cresting, lit by the sun turning the waves turquoise. The time of day is key here. It is midday, the strong sunlight is reflecting off the sea and through the waves. The highlights become a mixture of emeralds and blues contrasting with the deep blue of the sea.
I have tried to invoke an immersive feeling to my paintings. The sea is an ever-changing element that I find fascinating. Light hitting the water makes it’s colours change rapidly from a deep blue/black to a pale green almost white.
In 2008 I graduated with a BA (Hons) in Fine Art at the University of Plymouth. I have exhibited my paintings throughout Devon and gained an award at the Exeter Short Film festival. My films and photographs have been exhibited on the South Bank, London and in Italy. I am a Teignmouth based artist.
