The Sea The Sea! Greeting Cards
The wild coastline of the United Kingdom has inspired many stories of brave sailors and fishermen who risk their lives on the rough seas. Artists create paintings that tell a story of these harbors and their ships. I use poetry to collage evocative images that remind us of the salty air and the sound of crashing waves on the seashore.
This series of artworks were made following visits to Cornwall and are available as prints, greeting cards and coasters or table mats.
The painting below was made for a commission and is based on the poems of Gerard Manly Hopkins. The poems were chosen by the client and are particularly meaningful as her father was a fisherman at Whitby Harbour.
