The Groyne Series

People and children by the beach, at the seaside. Inspired by living on the coast in Brighton, South East England, where the city’s seafront draws gatherings of tourists, visitors, shoppers and locals spend time by the sea and enjoy the view.

The Groyne Series came about from observing the shapes of kids playing and jumping into the sea from the sea groynes. Painted in silhouette with glimmering highlights, these paintings seems to evoke memories of the height of summer for many people and could be anywhere in the world. Some of these works depict the craze of ‘tomb stoning’ as quoted in the mainstream press.
