Drawing and painting, Printmaking
Light hits the Ocean  Mixed Media Print  53cm x 73cm

I have a BA(hons) in Fine Art and have studied Printmaking in the Manhattan Graphics Centre, NYC, as well as exhibiting in New Jersey when living in the US.

My more recent experiences of walking and sketching along the coastal path have brought back memories of my childhood, islands of shellfish and the tides going so far out, almost beyond sight. The Geology of the coastline, and tidal changes are the source of my mixed media prints, experimenting with a combination of techniques to recreate the ethereal nature where the land meets the sea.
