I am very pleased that The Gathering has been selected as a finalist in the Mission to Seafarers Victoria Maritime Art Prize 2023. Judging to take place in late October.

The Gathering

A moment of shared experience and sensation amidst the rushing and receding of the encircling shore break. The people are my family, the dog is young and new to the ocean. A commonplace scene but a moment forever etched into our collective memory of the day. The Gathering is inspired by exposure, proximity and familiarity with the wild ocean.
