I was born in Hartlepool and I learned to swim and sail the dinghies my dad built at this spot. I painted this many years ago. All of my extended family would meet here whenever there was enough blue in the sky to make a pair of sailor’s trousers!

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.

    Both my parents were born in Hartlepool, Sue, so this has a lot of meaning for me. Beautifully rendered and so reminiscent of my summers spent on this sea front.

  • I spent every Sunday there and the rest, if there was a bit of a break in the clouds we were there! Small world, we are probably related!
