I am constantly drawn to  fragility, light and transparency and try hard to incorporate these qualities within my practice.   I am in awe of the  beautiful translucency of the turquoise sea down in Cornwall as it rises and crashes towards the beach.  I love watching the contrast of the dark seaweed spinning in the pale blue/green waves, against a backdrop of shimmering sunlight. 

I recently acquired a clear quartz stone with inclusions that reflected the qualities I love in the Cornish sea and a sharp reminder to me of how to work.

As this was formulating in my mind I found the most amazing leaf from a delphinium that had gone transparent, so I have been playing around with this image and intend incorporating it within a print.
