Below are just some of the sea inspired commissions based on a sea theme.
"Inspired by the Sea" became the theme of my 2003 exhibition and It was a really successful show attracting a lot of interest. My stands were adorned with flotsam and jetsam...you could practically smell the salt!
As a member of West Wittering Sailing Club, I have enjoyed many years of racing around the marks of Chichester Harbour. This piece depicts a dinghy about to tack around West Wittering South, one of the marks used by the local sailing clubs. Often, one has to sail close into the shore which is hairy! & shallow! However this gives one the best advantage for tacking to the finish line. Many a time I have tacked too late!!
The wood used was actually found on the shingle at Ellanore Spit and the boat has the proper rigging including main and jib sheet. Also see the West Wittering sailing mirror.

This was an inspired piece of wood which needed no painting. When I discovered this bit of wood on the seashore I was immediately captivated and knew what I would do. The colours matched sea and sky beautifully. The 3d lighthouse contrasts the softness of the wood and is a replica of a real lighthouse on the South coast of England. The texture and layering of the wood give an organic 'back to nature' feel to the piece.
Dimensions: 32cm height x 25cm wide

This name and design has been a great favourite of mine! The title came from an old sloop moored off Chichester Harbour and the wood itself may well be from an old boat! The original paint still on the driftwood gives a mysterious and arty mood to the small fishing or rowing boat moored to a sea-worn smooth piece of driftwood. A silvery moon shines over the scene to highlight the features reflected on the sea.
Please enlarge this plaque to view how the driftwood paint wash in the background is reminiscent of the clouds found in a mackerel sky - so typical of an English summer.
