    Faster Than A Man Can Run....

    This large abstract painting is part of a series of works created for my Tiny Islands exhibition shown recently at the beautiful seaside Staacks Gallery. The title for this painting is a quote from a man who was talking on a news report about the Solent and its tides. At the time it made me think of the speed at which the estuary tide rushes in filling the gullies and how important it is to always check the tide times if planning a visit to the Islands. Depending on weather conditions sometimes the tide can flow in faster than expected easily trapping anyone out on the sands. My painting also references maps that belonged to my dad and planned routes to follow for a safe crossing. It is also inspired by a memory from many years ago of one of my boys who went out for the day. He returned looking rather sandy. He announced he had visited Hilbre Island with a friend and when I asked him had he checked the times of the tides to my horror he said no! He was very lucky that day and I still go hot when I think about it and what the consequences could have been. He is a lot wiser now.

    Warm Marshland Grasses

    Warm Marshland Grasses

    This large mixed media painting is part of an ongoing series of works informed by my many walks beside the vast marshlands of the Dee estuary. I first began this painting after a walk on a warm summers day. The air was warm and hazy and the marshland grasses swayed rhythmically in the peaceful summer breeze.

    ROCKY SHORES

    ROCKY SHORES

    This large mixed media artwork is inspired by the tiny islands that sit at the mouth of the Dee Estuary and their rocky shores. This small goup of tidal islands are called Little Eye, Middle Eye and the largest island Hilbre. It has lots of different textures and interesting marks and has been created from my studies of the coastline and the islands on my daily walks.
