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.

I am part of the Artwey Christmas Exhibition at Weymouth Library until December 8th.

My last exhibition this year is at The Posh Partridge café in Dorchester starting December 10th over the Christmas period.
