Silver Street Gallery

Silver Street Gallery and Studio is my working studio which is located on St.Marys, and is open to the public all year round. When I’m not painting outside I’m usually working on larger paintings inside. When visiting you can also see current work in progress, and chat while watching me work


The Sherris’s have been living on Scilly for many generations, and having lived here nearly all my life I have an intimate knowledge and understanding of the islands and island life.sional artist and gallery owner for twenty years.

About the Artist

I have been painting full time nearly twenty years. Working on location and from my studio on St.Mary’s. I live on Scilly all year round and paint nearly every day. In the winter months I love to travel with my paints looking for new subjects and challenges. This helps me develop and keep my paintings fresh. 

Generally, I look for simplicity in a scene. Rendering just enough information to give the viewer the sense of being there. To help me capture this feeling I believe it is essential to paint on the spot in front of the subject. Only working in the studio once I have an intimate knowledge of the subject. Rather than have a predetermined method or procedure I like to be spontaneous and let the landscape influence how I paint. 

Work is available direct from from me at Silver Street Gallery on the Isles of Scilly, the Customshouse Gallery in Porthleven and the Waterside Gallery at St.Mawes

I also currently exhibit in galleries in west Cornwall and various art societies. Most recently at 

the  Mall Galleries with the Society of Wildlife Artists
