Matthew Hedges

Matthew Hedges.

Started painting more than 25 years ago and has devoted his working life to painting ocean waves in all kinds of light, producing exciting works of art in gouache, and occasionally, oil on canvas. His aim is to capture the texture and detail of the breaking wave with paint applied boldly and overlaid with razor sharp brush strokes.

Originally from London, his intimacy with the ocean began in 1992 when his desire to paint the sea was ignited by winter storms at Kynance Cove on the Lizard. After 4 years studying Illustration at Falmouth School of Art and Design, he had become very at ease with gouache, however the medium he mainly uses today is oil on board.
