I'm married to Claire and together, with our son Lewis, we live in Seasalter - just outside Whitstable, Kent, in the south east of England.

Gimme Shelter II

This piece is an attempt at capturing the rather washed out light that can be found on 
the coast at Seasalter , where I live, when the sky is boiling and the wind is up. These 
houses are perhaps 50m from the beach, and on days like this the sound of the waves 
ripping into the shingle and then sucking back can be hard to ignore. Government's 
plans to 'realign' this stretch of coast means that the houses are likely to be lost to 
the sea at some point.
