Inks, watercolour and collage

This is a square painting in muted colours of mainly greens and greys. It depicts a rockpool scene, of two mermaids purses surrounded by seaweeds and pebbles. Each of the objects are cut from papers taken from old textbooks, painted in inks, adding texture to them. Salt was used with the inks to add further texture, like barnacles in the sea.

I grew up on the North Yorkshire coast, and the seashore is a huge source of inspiration for me. I'm drawn to collecting pebbles, shells and fossils, and flotsam and jetsam. I also love the patterns and textures of fishing harbours. This piece evokes childhood memories of rock-pooling and the magic of discovering a mermaids purse.
