Saved By Seashells She Saved

During the early part of the coronovirus lockdown in March and April 2020, I collected seashells and rock pool treasures from Longsands beach. Tynemouth. This process, and the art I have been making subsequently helped me cope with a recurrence of anxiety. I gave a selection of my studio objects a shell or beach find to each hold on to. Whichever shell or curio fitted them best provided the inspiraton for the drawing. Their symbiotic embracing of their beach treasures stands for how I hold them and the healing power of Longsands close to my heart.
