I am an artist who was born and grew up in Cornwall. Over the years I have been fortunate enough to have combined my love of travel with painting. In the U.S I have exhibited in Texas, Nantucket, Charleston S.C. and New York City. Cornwall has been a theme of mine for some years and original works are displayed at the property.
