I have always loved boats and the sea. In fact the quiet of the marshes will do as well. These are my attempt to preserve a way of life that is rapidly disappearing and show people what life was like even a short number of years ago. Some people have said there is a sadness to my work. Its not that, its an admiration and respect for the boats and people that have lived these lives.
