"The beautiful coastline of Scarborough and its surrounding areas has been integral to my work as an artist for some time now. It offers an endless variation of light and mood with each day, not to mention season.

 My ‘portrait’ of the local bays expresses something of the physical sensory experience they offer – sight, sound and touch. South Bay and Cornelian Bay with their strong seaweed greens are forever imprinted on my memory. Jackson’s Bay presents a craggy and stark series of lines and shapes which appear again and again in my work. 

The vibrant, semi-abstract paintings and sketches in this exhibition evoke memories of the sea and shore which are personal to each viewer. A bold vertical line may remind one of an imposing cliff-face, a round shape may recall pebbles smoothed by the waves – each interpretation is unique."
