As   a   graphic   design   student   in   London,   I   saw   some   of   J   M   William   Turner's   landscapes and seascapes and was intrigued by his interpretation of light and the movement of water. Now,   after   having   spent   over   30   years   as   a   designer,   I   have   started   photographing   long exposure   seascapes,   mainly   at   sunrise   and   sunset   -   trying   to   capture   the   flowing   quality   of water and time. Usually,   photography   is   a   medium   that   freezes   a   moment   in   time   –   but   I   believe   my work extends that moment so that the flow of time can be seen. I   believe   my   technique   imparts   a   painterly   quality   to   my   artwork   and   offers   a   range   of absorbing,   moody   images   capturing   the   fleeting   image   of   water   and   light   in   motion.   I   prefer printing them on canvas which complements the effect.
