Limited edition Solar Plate etching intaglio print from photos of waves taken whilst swimming in the North Sea -Part of a body of work which explores water as an artist and open water/ Channel swimmer from a unique perspective
I have a love and bond to the sea (swam the Channel in 2008) which forms the basis of much of my current photography and printmaking work . My work explores the feeling and sensations of being submersed , and immersed in the sensorial world of water.
Choosing to consciously submerge myself as a daily practice has led me toward keeping a submerged diary and photographic record wherein I collate daily the patterns and subtle changes of the water. Learning to acclimatize myself to the shifting moods of the water has led me to a deeper awareness of patterns, textures, waterline traces and colours that are revealed and experienced by my dwelling consciously within the habitat of water.
