Sedimentary Stones and Stitches

My journey of discovery at Combe Martin beach differs every time I visit. This piece entitled “Sedimentary Stones and Stitches” 2023 combines and reflects my love of the coast and the patterns, colours and textures that emerge through the large overhanging caverns, the differing seaweeds that are abundant in the murky rock pools, and the debris that is dramatically tossed aside by the fierce Atlantic. Initially a monoprint, the journey developed by using hand and machine stitches, beading and felting.
