Sax Impey

Sax Impey works from Porthmeor Studios, part of a historic studio complex overlooking Porthmeor beach in St Ives, Cornwall.

Since 2005 he has produced work derived almost exclusively from experiences at sea. A qualified RYA Yachtmaster, he has sailed many thousands of nautical miles delivering yachts at sea in many parts of the world, working for TV Yachtdelivery.

Whilst maintaining a solo studio practice he has also engaged in numerous collaborative projects, including film, theatre, performance and installation works.

He has been exhibiting with Millennium Gallery, now Anima – Mundi, since 2002, and was elected an RWA Academician in 2012.

His paintings are in numerous collections including The Arts Council, Warwick University, the Connaught Hotel alongside many other private collections worldwide.
