The sea, the beach, headlands, waves and sand, beach combing have all been a source of pleasure and inspiration in my life.
I am drawn to the feelings of energy, power, danger, the unknown and conflicting with those the feelings of weightlessness, vulnerability and floating free. Body surfing, the surge of adrenaline and thrill of riding a wave to shore. There is joy and sense of freedom which I try to convey in my paintings. I have moved away from calm realism to more energetic semi abstract work but still love some of the earlier works.
