As an artist who grew up by the sea, the coastline has always held a special place in my heart. The organic shape of the rocks, the salty scent, ever changing hues and moods of the sea and the vibrant colours of the sunrise over the water all inspire me deeply.
In my work, I want to capture the essence of the coastline and its ever-changing beauty, to create pieces that evoke the feeling of being by the sea.
For me the coastline represents a sense of freedom and possibility. It is a place where one can escape the stresses of daily life and connect with nature on a deep level. I am always striving to capture this sense of freedom and possibility.
My work is not only about capturing the physicality of the sea, or the joy of a day at the seaside, but also its emotional and spiritual significance. The sea has been a symbol of life, death and transformation throughout human history, and I aim to tap into this timeless symbolism to create works that resonate with viewers on a deeper level.
At the same time, my work is deeply personal and reflective of my own experiences and emotions. I am drawn to the coastline not only for its natural beauty, but also for the sense of peace and tranquillity that it brings me. This emotional connection is reflected in my art, which is both expressive and introspective.
Through my art, I hope to share my love of the coastline with others and inspire them to connect with nature in their own way. Whether it is through a walk on the beach or a quiet moment spent admiring the view, I believe that the beauty of the coastline has the power to bring us all closer to the natural world and to each other.
