Many of my early works were themed nautical or children juxtaposed against nautical imagery
For two main reasons, I spent a huge amount of my life near or directly next to the ocean and was addicted to it and spent most of my life amongst it, beachcombing surfing etc Its also a metaphor for the journeys that seem surreal and adventurous were beyond the horizon anything is possible. “A future that is dreamlike and noon linear” I also like making art that is appealing to the eye and nautical imagery is to me very charming
