My Signature ‘Beachscape’ Collection

The emotion of this collection comes from my childhood memories but the style of this collection is influenced by a much loved painter, L.S. Lowry. My beachscapes might feel like a world away from the mill scenes and industrial landscapes of Lowry’s work; where the figures are often leaning forward with heads down, moving towards their destination rather than enjoying being where they are. And yet many people are reminded of Lowry when they look at these paintings.
Lowry’s figures were often dark, thin and elongated, given
the name of ‘matchstick men’ by a critic – a name which Lowry didn’t like, but a name which sticks fondly in the minds of many people when they think of Lowry. In these paintings I want people to be able to spend time looking around all elements of the picture; seeing something new or conjuring a cherished holiday memory with every glance.
