Sea conditions differ with seasons, light and time of day. Locally I am fortunate to have the Moray and Cromarty Firth on my doorstep as well as other coasts and islands within striking distance. As a moderately addicted sea swimmer and occasional sea kayaker I keep a keen eye on the sea conditions and get to experience its moods from different angles and stages of immersion. I am forever grateful to have the sea close by to salve my sore body and clear my cluttered mind. Having painted so many coastal works I am keen to move on but I am constantly pulled back by the respect, the power and the magnetism the ocean invokes.
First exhibited as 'Coast' at Nairn Community and Arts Centre 2021 and then locally as part of mixed exhibitions.
