Meet The West Coast Community
Visit Newquay Blue Reef Aquarium, Cornwall UK, for my latest work on 'Comet' the Orca, 1 from a pod of 9 found in the UK's West Coast Community. Sadly unable to breed due to micro plastics passing from mother to calf when feeding.
Idea's for my painting's come naturally as I love to walk on the beaches and cliffs, especially on an a sunny Spring/Summer morning, I adore the smell of the gorse, hearing the crickets in the dune grass, watching butterflies idle gently while bee's flit over the shrubs, Always my breath is taken, when my eye is cast over the splendour of the jewel like sea.

Inspiration June 2010
"A few years ago I donated a painting to a local community group called Save our Sands at Hayle Towan Beach, as a fitting tribute to some special ladies lost in our family.
I wanted to help, as my mother in law was an environmental scientist".
"Losing family has influenced the journey of my work, its simply not enough to recycle & up-cycle, if I can raise awareness of current man made pollution issues within my work, I feel that my work has purpose & value".
Balloon Release- During my experience of using local bereavement services
I was asked to let go of a balloon as part of a group, a way of letting go of the days emotions, I refused and told them that my mother in law would be unhappy as biodegradable balloons take 20 years or more to break down and kill many birds and other wildlife with the plastic ribbons etc, I followed up with alternatives and I believe they stopped sometime time after.
Grief is indeed a delicate subject and I understand loss only to well, but I do not believe that it is ok to exchange a human life for innocent and unsuspecting wildlife.
