About the Book
For many years I have lived and worked in Cornwall and like most Cornish painters I am an outsider looking in.
All Celtic communities retain a certain character of independence, it is only after residing here for a while that you realise Kernow really does belong to the Cornish.
Living as an outsider can give rise to a type of solitary diffidence, not only from being alien to Cornwall’s traditions and way of life but also from its dark and rugged landscape.
It is a landscape that evokes timelessness and takes the mind from itself, leaving only the moment.
