Artwork description:

Since April I have been working on a collection of works inspired by rock pools and the stoney path around the coastline between Cullercoats and Whitley in the North East where I live. It’s an area we walk in regularly so you become familiar with the shapes and structures and how they differ depending on the tide.

Many of my earlier pieces like Bay Mosaic and Tide Pools reflect the muted, earthy tones of browns and beiges but during the summer months I wanted to capture the of freshness of the season and the sense of everything appearing brighter and bolder in the sunshine so I decided upon a more playful colour palette. The inspiration was really the joyfulness of summer. With more people holidaying in the UK this year the beaches were alive with families and it was great to see little ones rock pooling with tiny fishing nets and brightly coloured wellies! The experience evoked childhood memories of paddling in the sea and trying to skim pebbles across the waters surface.

In this collection of works I wanted to convey the ripples and beautifully organic shapes that you see as a pebble gently touches the water before bouncing forward – although I have to admit that my skills in skimming or skipping pebbles is rubbish.
