This section focuses on Inspirational photography gathered from my travels around the south Coast of England. Many of the beach images are used purely for nostalgia, as I have a few extra special coastal locations.... However, I also capture a lot of textures of stones, rocks, grasses,waves and wild flowers; for colour combinations as well as structure and pattern. I have a strong background in embroidery and texture from my degree in Fashion & Textiles (1990's). I find pleasure in seeing pattern and form. I take time to play; combining textures to make patchworks and build up pictures. This is the starting point for all my work.
