I grew up near a tidal river estuary in Lancashire.  I spent lots of time walking there.  When I was about 8, we went on a school trip to Sunderland Point – a little hamlet- the road to which is often cut off by the high tides.  I remember learning the name of wading birds.  Ever since I have been really attracted to the openness of estuaries.  I love the long horizontal lines that make the view, the merging of colours in the distance and the feeling of wanting to walk forever across the mud.

After the caterpillar project, I wanted something  I really could connect with.  There is also a fab campsite just next to the coast where we went for a lovely weekend away in September.  Thus the scene is set for my next project.
