A fiercely Cornish painter and artist, born in 1918. His abstract or near-abstract paintings, collages and constructions were inspired by the coastal landscape of West Cornwall. In 1959 he took up gliding, the experience of which had a powerful effect on his work: "This is why I do gliding myself, to get actually into the air itself and get a further sense of depth and space into yourself, into your own body, and then carry it through a painting." He died following a gliding accident in 1964.
