In 2013 I returned to my childhood home on Morecambe Bay after living and working in the South of England. I knew that art and landscape would play a huge part in my future but didn't have a clear idea of how this might evolve. I began to take photographs during my evening strolls on the Bay, gradually exploring further afield. In the beginning, this was just a way of being - a chance to reconnect with myself and my surroundings. Over the years my walks have become an important part of my art practice, and also a way of living and communicating with the world around me. In 2015 I self-published some of the photos as a Blurb book, which is still available. Since then my experience and understanding has continued to evolve and I would like to publish the work again including drawings and texts. I include a small selection of the photographs below.
Morecambe Bay is situated on the Lancashire and Cumbria coastline, just to the south of the Lake District National Park. Covering an area of 320 square kilometres, it is the largest area of intertidal mudflats and sand in the UK.
