Carl Thorgood has lived in Cornwall since 2001, finding inspiration from the industrial shoreline areas of Penwith, particularly around Newlyn. He says: 'I seek to achieve a resonance between the industrial, elemental and inner processes that create my art work, and a sense of transformation and alchemy.'

In 1987 he gained a Foundation Art Certificate from Winchester School of Art. This was followed in 1991 by a BA (Hons) in Art Education Studies at the Cardiff Institute, University of Wales. There he went on to obtain an Art Teacher's Certificate.

His work has been widely exhibited in Cornwall. He is represented by the Market House Gallery in Marazion and the Fernlea Gallery in St Ives.
