WATER'S EDGE

I’m fascinated by the simple beauty of the forms that gather at the water’s edge. Each pebble is unique in shape, linear markings, colour and texture and yet their coming together in close groupings creates a sense of unity and belonging. It is only by slowing down and stopping to really see and look that their beauty reveals itself and we notice how connected they are with the vast landscape in which they nestle. For me looking at something so small, and seemingly insignificant, at my feet, is similar to looking up at the stars; the beauty and significance, of that which is often overlooked, is just as remarkable.

These paintings are worked on paper or, more recently on birchwood in watercolour, ink and most recently with earth, botanical and mineral pigments.
