Pigment samples collected from the West and South Coast of Portugal along with a map of where I collected the earth.

These have been ground into printing inks and displayed is a small etching made from a drawing of Castelejo Beach which has been printed with the pigment from the soil I collected there.

Portugal pigments

I have spent the last summer on a couple of Suffolk beaches sketching pebbles, rocks and seashell fragments. I am interested in the textures caused by millions of years of weather and erosion slowly chiselling, buffing and polishing the earth's rock into stones. I also print from found objects on the beach - wood and metal.

I was in Portugal again in the winter and made many more drawings which helped me produce this artists book which won the V&A printmaking prize in 2016 for "A Walk Along Gale Beach" and a highly commended prize in 2018 for a rolodex 'A Tidal A - Z'
