I make my coastal inspired artwork using a mixture of recycled baked bean tins, driftwood and other bits of flotsam & jetsam I find along the shoreline.
I grew up on the coast in East Anglia and spent many happy days taking in the delights of the seaside; from crabbing at Walberswick to trawling the local beaches for shells, that elusive piece of amber or maybe even a fossil.
Having moved to Cardiff for University my beachcombing continued. I developed a love for the bits of driftwood with flaky paint and gorgeous rusty patina that washed up on the rocky Welsh coastline. At University I began to make my playful ceramic boats. Over the years I have developed my work in tin and I am hopefully carrying on that playful theme in my current work.
