A rather light-hearted take on my beloved Cornish harbours and marine life motifs that crop up regularly when I work.  The odd cluster of mussels (those that escaped the table), fish and nets,\ their enemy, but tools of a trade that supported so many of our coastal communities for centuries,  Although there are only a couple of major industrial fishing ports now, there remain a good number of smaller enterprises, fishing in a sustainable way.  I love that.

I grew up on the north coast of Cornwall and although I’ve lived and worked in Southeast Asia, in Spain and in Scotland, all of which informed my work in different ways, Cornwall has always drawn me home.
