Jo Bemis

"I have always had a love for and a strong connection to the ocean. Growing up on the Isle of Wight meant I was never far from the sea. Rock pooling and paddling (even in icy waters during winter) were a normal part of my childhood. My painting is all about trying to capture the energy and spirit of the British coastline, but in particular moving water. The windswept coastline of the north coast of Cornwall is especially inspiring for me, and I visit the surfing beaches there frequently. Even on an overcast day the water there has a beautiful, luminous quality and there are infinite forms to the waves and dramatic lighting effects to draw inspiration from."
