Myles lives and works in a studio in Cornwallwhere he is inspired everyday by painting outdoors. When exploring the landscape and waterscapes of his surrounding environment Myles becomes inspired by the changing light, weather and seasons and aims to capture an essence of the place he has experienced. He also gets inspiration from his travels returning frequently to paint in the Welsh Valleys, Scotland and the Swiss Alps. Mainly painting in oil, Myles is constantly developing his techniques and the relationship between paint, mark making and subject. The river side studio in Penryn is full of books and magazines which reference his ongoing interest in past and present artists including Scottish colourists (Myles grew up inScotland) The Bay Area Artists and many others. 

Alongside his ongoing landscape work Myles has been producing some popular new still lifes and paintings of dogs. Myles won a prize at the Discerning Eye Competition in 2009 for his painting of his dog, Rudy.
