Designer say

As an artist my recurring interest in coastal landscapes and marine scenes never ceases to captivate me – my paintings often conveying the very same sense of anticipation I get at spending the day at the beach. Another great influence on my work has been the artwork associated with travel posters from the 1920’s and 1930’s where detail is kept to a minimum, and the use of flat colour and strong shapes created by light and shadow. Working with light and shadow is further emphasised by choosing to use a limited palette of desaturated, earthy hues – rather than ‘pulling you in’ allowing you to ‘drift’ effortlessly into the scene as if on a gentle tide.
