As for many, the beach is an emotional escape for me. It's where I go when I'm happy as well as when I'm sad. I have no interest in painting a real life representation of a scene and only wish to paint how it makes us FEEL. We are mesmerised by the undulating waves, delight at the crunch beneath our feet and breathe in the whisper of freedom and adventure brought with the salty air. I hope to capture a little of this so we can drift off in our minds back to the sea.
