Meet the Artist

Hello, my name is Chris Howarth, otherwise known as One Man And His Rake.

I am a sand artist located in Cornwall, UK. I have always had a keen interest in drawing and art in general. I became interested in the ephemeral art form, after watching a video showing the sea washing away a sand drawing. For me, this is a major part of my work. I love watching the sea reclaim my art as it washes its way up the beach. Sometimes it can take numerous waves to finally swallow the piece, but other times it can be taken with one.

I started creating sand art in February 2015 and have loved it ever since. I take my inspiration from patterns and everyday objects that I come across. My personal favourites are geometrical designs, but equally I love drawing free hand mazes. There is nothing better than to sit on the cliffs above my work and watch people enjoy the piece I have created.

Feel free to head over to my online shop to see the products I have for sale or my Social media pages to see what I have been up to.

I also take on private and commercial commissions.

Previous private commissions have included but not limited to; Marriage proposals, birthday celebrations and birth announcements.
