About this work

This was a view through a restaurant window. I was gazing in, who was leaning in?

Beach Walk

Beach Walk

About this work

Two people walking on a beach, alongside each other,  not talking.

I find the best beach walks are with a friend, but on our own separate journeys gazing at the sea, peering into rock pools, throwing stones into the sea.

About this work

Here are my brothers, in the 50s, fishing for something I think. My brother gave me this tiny black and white photo, taken with a brownie camera.

A Day by the Sea

A Day by the Sea

About this work

This is a picture of a friend's parents in the 50s. I saw it on his desk and he kindly send me a copy. I found their expressions so happy and romantic. I added the stormy sea to indicate what was coming up behind them. They both remind me of my friend in different ways. It helped me to see where he came from.

About this work

This painting encapsulates what I am interested in exploring. Each person is relating in a different way - with the viewer, with herself and with the surroundings.

About this work

On my way to swim early one winter morning I caught a beautiful view of the rising sun streaming over the frosty ground. I jumped out and took photos. The person was struggling uphill with the buggy and didn’t notice me or the view.

Kids on the Sofa - Knackered!

Kids on the Sofa - Knackered!

About this work

This shows some young people I know well lounging on the sofa after a hard week. I think the picture says it all! They are relaxed enough in each other's company not to relate to each other at all at this moment. The way they have settled on top of one another indicates how comfortable they are.

About this work

I took a series of photos of these two in the space of five minutes. Every picture tells a story!

Here the couple are focusing on different things - mobile phone and TV. But they are still relating to each other in the way they are sitting comfortably together.

She hates people messing with her hair!

I used different background colours to show different aspects of the relationship.

My Mother Disappearing

My Mother Disappearing

About this work

This is from a photo taken on a brownie camera by a small person in the 1950s. Perhaps mother hurried off to get back to the housework and didn't have time to wait for my brother to take the picture. She died a year or so later, so disappeared definitively!

About this work

I am intrigued by windows and doorways. I suppose I was on the threshold of something and Katie was there in the doorway too. I took a photo and expanded on the idea!

About this work

The stormy sea is exhilarating, dangerous, even threatening.The surfer is finishing for the day and looking forward to a calmer evening on land. I took a photo of a young surfer in Teignmouth and elaborated on the image.
