This series of abstract seascape paintings are based around the Essex and Suffolk coasts. 

The changing seasons, light and general mood of the landscape throughout the year, act as a continuous inspiration and a catalyst for future experimentation.

I use photographs to record local events and factual representation of the landscape I then reinterpret these via the medium of oil and acrylic paintings through a more abstract approach. 

In some cases the visual representation is stripped down and simplified to explore the emotional response of 'being there'
