Solway Estuary Paintings

“For many years I have lived and worked next to the Solway estuary, I still fish in it using the traditional Haaf net.

Since childhood, I’ve been acutely aware of the action of the tide; a place that was safe to walk on yesterday can be too treacherous today.

I hope that my paintings in some way convey the idea of the impermanence and shifting nature of the Solway estuary and also the influence of the weather over time on this environment.
