Inspired by a moment on Burton Bradstock beach
in West Dorset THE EDGE captures a point of
sublimation where sea, sand and sky meet in one
perfection. As an artist, I am often called to find
that sweet spot and simply stand, be, allowing the
elements to work on me and through me. There is
always a sense of magnificent insignificance. Words,
delivered on the waves, the seas breath, riding the
tides to other shores where the essence of random
sentences would make it to dry land and rest upon
the shoreline to inspire some other artist to create.
