These prints are quite old, but I have added them, as I have been thinking about them recently. I spend quite a lot of time in North Somerset and during 2009 I was inspired by walking around Sand Bay on the Severn Estuary. It is wild and last time I was there, very, very windy. Weston-super-Mare, just around the corner from Sand Bay, is well known for it's mud. Ecologically this mud is very important. It is one of the best areas for mud, sand flats and Atlantic salt meadows. Looking at the beach, the shells, the washed up twigs and wood and the salty edges, I produced a series of prints that represent this watery perimeter, between land and estuary.
