‘Art is a vehicle which allows me to communicate visually, to create an emotional and thought provoking response to a landscape or the natural world, in order to help promote the diversity of view and nature of the world in which we live’.
‘I love to work on coasts with stormy seas, coves and rocks, and I remember as a child walking along beaches, spending hours looking in rockpools for sea creatures and for semi-precious stones. But for several years I have been quietly collecting driftwood and creating sculptures, and have recently started to sell the work. Each piece of driftwood artwork is unique, a limited edition of 1, and is made from wood washed up on North Wales beaches. Some of the wood has drifted with the Ocean currents from across the Atlantic, so time, distance and the work of the sea has eroded and carved the wood. I have simply joined the pieces together’.
