ALONG THE COAST

This body of work is inspired by sketches and observations made whilst walking along the coast; empty windswept beaches, the spray of the ocean, the tidemark, pebbles, driftwood, marks in the sand, the groynes as man meets the sea. Susie has re-introduced text from the Lines & Text series using it as the background of “Windswept Beach” which is constructed from hand stitched words taken from her sketchbooks whilst on the beach.
