Artwork designed and created from the art of beachcombing
About the Artist
I am originally from London and moved down to the South Coast nearly 4 years ago. I have always been a creative and artistic person and when I moved I was able to visit the beach more and found more treasures. This led to me designing some pictures with items I found while beachcombing.
Before I make any pictures I clean and sterilise all items I have brought home from the beach, this means that all items have lost their ‘beach smell’ and won’t disintegrate once in the frames.
While on the beach I only collect the items I want/need for the pictures I am making, if I take something home and find it doesn’t fit or isn’t quite right I return back to the beach with a bucket once a month to return those items. While beachcombing I always have a bag for the items I find and another bag for the rubbish I collect.
I love being on the beach and finding items that I can see what it will be before I even get it home. I have found pieces of driftwood that look like a creature or a shape and then create the picture/design around that piece of driftwood.
I come up with most of my designs myself but I also create commissions for clients. When I receive an enquiry I will come up with 1 or 2 designs to show the client and we will work at making the commission picture exactly what they want (within the restrictions of the items being natural). I love receiving commissions as it can stretch my imagination a little more.
I also make driftwood mirrors of all different sizes. Such beautiful pieces of driftwood need to be used.
