Artworks: Seascapes series 1

I’ve been collecting odd bits of wood washed up on the west coast beaches in Scotland for over 2 years now, drying them out on my mum’s under-floor heating or on her AGA, much to her sighing patience….

I found some sail like shells on just 2 metres of the beach, and an odd box of broken wooden toys in the attic…I’ve never painted seascapes before…never worked with wood before…but with a wood-workshop on site, I started scrounging offcuts from the boys and odd house build sites…and with a pot of white emulsion, looked at my new horizons…

I made these seascapes to make into cards to sell by any coast…

…and then we hung an exhibition in a barn, and sold them all. The next series is due out soon..
