Idea's for my painting's come naturally as I love to walk on the beaches and cliffs, especially on an a sunny Spring/Summer morning, I adore the smell of the gorse, hearing the crickets in the dune grass, watching butterflies idle gently while bee's flit over the shrubs, Always my breath is taken, when my eye is cast over the splendour of the jewel like Sea.
Inspiration June 2010
"A few years ago I donated a painting to a local community group called Save our Sands at Hayle Towan Beach, as a fitting tribute to some special ladies lost in our family."
"Losing family has influenced the journey of my work, its simply not enough to recycle & up cycle, if I can raise awareness of current man made pollution issues within my work, I feel that my work has purpose & value".
I am especially pleased that since the launch of Blue Planet ii, that the 'Attenborough' effect has made such an impact on the U.K and it is fantastic to see so many new groups get involved on beach cleans and at the same time keeping my work current.
