Dirty Freighter



A trip to the beach can provide all sorts of objects that can re-combine to form some kind of art. Driftwood is the obvious material. I frame many of Carol’s pictures with it and make sculptures too. Seaglass can be used for tiny pictures as well as for simple necklaces.

The sad side is that much of what I collect used to be parts of someone’s boat – but at least it has a new life.

My day job was as a Psychology teacher and once I found half a plastic brain!

Virtually everything I use I have found – usually only the hanging fitting is new. Finding, sorting and arranging takes a lot longer than making.

Carol & I are in the March issue of Coast magazine! Pages 102 and 103 … and 104! Lots of photos by Antje Rook of Carol & I as well as photos of Carol’s work. We’re really pleased with it! You can find the article on their website too.

Open For Art 19 is nearly here and we’re still busy with admin and preparation. Come and see our new garden beach hut (which replaced the one blown away by The Beast From the East!) with our latest art.
