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.
