The Tidal series began after I started spending more time in Maine and set up a studio there. My beloved and very large greyhound Fergus requires quite a bit of exercise daily. While walking on Goose Rocks Beach with him every morning, I am struck with how constantly this special place changes. Each tide, every wind and current carve the sand into new patterns and designs, continually returning and washing away each night. The tide's cycles, with their repetitions and effects- both subtle and sometimes fantastic, are a constant source of inspiration.
