An old coble with sail making it’s way back to the safety of the harbour as a storm is brewing. Inspired by The Staithes Group of Artists.

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.
