seascapes, oil painting, Durham Artist


I am a Seascape Artist based in the North East. I work usually in oil on canvas. I have been an artist for as long as I can remember and a professional/exhibiting artist for over 25 years. My passion is the Sea and the memories and feelings it evokes. There is a mystical and fearful yet comforting sense to the coast and the ocean and I try to capture this. I love to create a sense of drama by use of light and colour. My work evolves in series each one informing the last, and the series often starts as an image I have either seen in reality or an image that forms in my mind from a line in a poem or even a song. Many of my paintings are recreations of memories or just recreations of imaginings dreamed up whilst I sit and while a private day at the coast.
