“I was born along way from the coast in Birmingham, so my annual holidays in Devon with my parents held magical moments for me.
At twenty one years of age I moved to Vancouver on the Pacific coast of Canada where I lived by the beach for two years where I was able to observe a different ocean with its fantastic light.
On my return to the UK I lived in the city until I was able to make the move to the Devon coast when I was in my early thirties, realising that the sea was the draw, I then moved on to Cornwall.
The sea now plays an important part in my life, exploring the sounds and sometimes the violence of the crashing waves. I know that I could never leave now.”
