These works are the ones I displayed at Coastal, an exhibition in February 2008.
My fellow artists, Pip Carroll, Anna Warren, Margaret Westcott had a series of works too. Our theme was coastal and for more than a year before I photographed the sea everywhere I went, and painted seagulls and sand and sea. I did my first workshop on artist’s books and made two altered books specifically for the show.

Each piece has its own story.
The only piece I sold at the exhibition was a collaged thong (look at the installation works to see it).
Afterwards I put them all on ebay, where one work, subject to a bidding war, which pushed to a great price (less than I had on the piece at exhibition). The others went to good homes for about the price of postage. I enjoyed the process.
