Drawings made on regular trips to the Northumbrian Coast developed into detailed bird drawings and responses to the ever changing seascapes and sandbanks close to Lindisfarne. Walking, striding, singing, looking and stopping; experiencing the smells and sounds of the beach is inspirational. How amazing to be startled and constantly delighted by the uplift of flocks of sea birds as they whirl into the elements. This expansive environment can only enrich the soul. The Somerset coastline has revealed equally interesting resource material.
