Art Inspired by a Love of Freediving

I am a British artist who's life has been shaped by my love of the sea. From an early age all my summers were spent living in a beach hut only metres from the ocean, our days were spent snorkelling over the migrating spider crabs, diving down to the mussel beds to gather our dinner and trying to spot flat fish hiding on the sandy sea floor. I've now made my home on one of the most beautiful stretches of coast in South Devon.

I love an adventure and am drawn to any sport that involves being in, on or by the sea. I am a freediver (diving on a single breath of air) and spending time underwater has been the main inspiration for my artwork. Freediving has taken me all over the world to remote tropical beaches, crystal clear Icelandic fjords and tiny atolls in the middle of the ocean.

I try to capture my subject matter how I view it when freediving so I work from a combination of memory, photos and most importantly videos to recreate movement in my work. My subject matter consists of sea life found around the British coast or things I’ve seen on my travels; whether it's something small from a rock pool, a rare seahorse that inhabits my local harbour or the giant manta rays and whale sharks in the Maldives.

I have a degree in Fine Art specialising in textiles and experiment with many mediums to create texture and colour but I love the simplicity of taking just a pencil case and sketch pad with me on my travels and this is how my love of pen and ink drawing has evolved. My favourite place to draw is sitting on a beach with my toes in the sand.

Thank you for taking the time to read about me and I hope you enjoy browsing through my shop, I'd love to hear your feedback!

What is a Giclée print?

This description is taken from the Fine Art Trade Guild:
"It is a digital print. A giclée is the term for a fine art digital print, often a reproduction but occasionally a computer generated original. It is made from a file stored on a computer. Before the advent of fine art quality digital prints, the vast majority of fine art prints were made using offset lithography. Giclée is the French word for 'squirt', as this is the way that the ink is applied to the paper or canvas.”
