My love of the sea stems from my childhood. I was born in Hartlepool on the North East coast and visited the little fishing village of Staithes often, as I still do today. The fishing cobles to be found on the North East coast serve as my models.

    you make beauty of the polluted… they should buy this image for their company calendar… sans comments ;-)))

  • Funny you should say that, the owner of one of the galleries I work with tried to sell it to them…funny they didn’t rise to the bait! My son has it now.
