RX FISHING BOATS  
RX is the registration code for the Rye and Hastings fishing fleet. Hastings still has the largest beach-based fishing fleet in Europe and it is possible to walk right up to the wooden hulls as they dry out on the beach, sometimes for the last time. At Dungeness the beach is littered with the slowly disintegrating remains of these tough little boats which with their splintered wood, rusting nails and sun bleached and peeling layers of paint  offer a feast of textures for the artist,  

OTHER LINKS
Neither abstract nor traditional landscape art, my work is perhaps best described as 'non-figurative', focusing on mood and ambience rather than literal subject matter.

The Hastings Fishermen's Protection Society preserves the fishing community's medieval right to carry on using that beach - known as the Stade - for ever, free of charge.
