CURRENT WORK

 Ever Changing Coastline of Britain

Many places along Britains coast are awash with the remains of submerged forests, shipwrecks, caves, cliffs, and saltmarsh returned again to open water.  The romance of lost tracts of land that over time have shifted back again to sea tell many stories.

Living along the north Norfolk coast, I resonate with the ever changing coastline.  In the minds of man the sea and land seemingly exist as opposites, yet around the edges everything changes every six hours. The coast is vulnerable and fragile.

My painterly work weaves in written words with layers of jewel-toned colours and reflects upon the impermanence of life and the powerful forces of nature. I paint the cultural imprint history leaves on the landscape, echoing the sound of ancient footsteps from centuries ago, of fishermen collecting cockles in the creeks, of farmers bringing in the harvest.
