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.
