About Us

'Small Wonders, Cornwall', was born from the immense pleasure and joy that my wife and I gained from our many visits to Cornwall over the years.

We now have the privilege of living here.

I have always loved the sea-shore, spending endless hours beach-combing in my childhood. My fascination with seaweeds, or marine algae, to give them their correct name, began in my student days.

I think it was one of my tutors who suggested pressing the seaweed specimens we had collected whilst on a detailed survey of a bleak Northumbrian shore.

I have kept those early specimens, now well over 30 years old. The colours are still good and true.

I wanted to use my fascination with the the natural world to create something that captured a little of Cornwall’s coastal beauty.
