A former civil servant now retired, he describes his work as “exciting – painting seascapes and landscapes in an Impressionist/abstract style encapsulating Cornish light and life whilst still maintaining the originality of the subject”. The development of his artistic style has taken place over many years. It has now become more fully established since moving to Cornwall and being able to concentrate “full time” on painting. Adrian lives at Tremorran, Botallack near St Just with his partner and three cats in a former tin mine Captain’s House where he has as open studio. Largely self taught in regard to his ‘painting’ he has a wide and diverse experience of life. His paintings have sold consistently of late. A signwriter, gilder, calligrapher restorer, now concentrating as an “en plein air artist” painting pictures without the constraints of financial concerns or other pre-occupations. This new found freedom has resulted in a  profusion of pictures - examples of which can be found on the website.
