My work began by looking out on to the water where the boats lay. I photographed the boats and soon began to look more closely at their intricate surfaces. I observed their rough weathered textures and crumbling layers and attempted to incorporate these into my work. I also sought to convey the effect time has had on these boats: stripping and corroding their physical stature. As I progressed my paintings became more abstract; less about the boats as physical vessels and more about the detrimental effect time and weather have had on them.
