Beachcombed mixed media
I wanted to move to the seaside. I researched the 'best beach combing in Great Britain' and Herne Bay is where I ended up, with lots of other beaches around to explore. Different things on different beaches all coming together when the time and inspiration are given a starting point, to go with the 'ebb and flow' of my creative instincts. And the ebb and flow of what the sea brings in.
I wrote the first paragraph when I first started beach combing and creating, but over the few years, there are definitely seasons on what the sea throws up on the beach. Considering tides, longshore drift, wind; there is so much to learn to try and anticipate when a good time will be to find things. Or. I think it is the better alternative to leave the sea to decide.
