‘Walking the shoreline’ was created this year just before lockdown. Walking along the shoreline and standing and watching the tide attracts not just people. The oystercatchers look out to sea. Then they march along the shoreline with big purposeful strides. Then stop and play statues. Have a quick look around and then march the other way. The shoreline is more than just a feast for them. It’s a playful place for people and oystercatchers.
Born in Mortlake, London. A printmaker working in a small village in Kent and on the North Norfolk coast. Taking inspiration and sketching out in the field or bird hides then returning to the studio to develop linocuts using multiple blocks for each set of colours. The linocut blocks are then inked and hand printed using an Albion Press made by Henry Watts, 1859.
