Collections from the Sea
Growing up within a fishing family, having a father who was a professional fisherman and now living on the coastline has created this collection of paintings. A collection of my memories and the connection I have with the sea.
Recently moving to live on Weeroona Island I have found my inspiration to paint again.
I often paint in my pyjamas listening to my favourite 80s music.
My inspiration comes from looking closely at the rock formations, seaweed; sand the ever-changing colours of the sea and those incrediable sunsets and reflections from the sky.
Using a palette knife and modelling paste I love to experiment with mix materials mainly found along the foreshore. Collecting all sorts of materials from broken glass, shells, seaweed, barnacles and even cuttlefish remains. Debbie
