This body of work is inspired by three sailing voyages I was involved in during 2023. 

The experience of spending days at sea , and then the tension and excitement on entering a busy, working harbour was both exhilarating and stressful. 

Armed with my small sketchbook from those trips, I started visiting, exploring and researching the Fishing Ports of East Scotland. I am interested in the gritty working environment of these areas. The harsh, industrial, time and weatherworn appearance of the boats and harbours mirrored my emotional response at the time. I have explored this by use of collage materials, layered mark making and line.
