The Groyne Series came about from observing the shapes of kids playing and jumping into the sea from the sea groynes. Painted in silhouette with glimmering highlights, these paintings seems to evoke memories of the height of summer for many people and could be anywhere in the world. These works make a virtue out of the craze of ‘tomb stoning’ as quoted in the mainstream press.
