'The coastline of East Anglia is fragile and constantly changing. While we try to preserve it - stitching it together, containing and restructuring it - just as often we leave the sea to encroach unchecked. Boundaries, borders and defences are destroyed and abandoned, we retreat and re-group. In my paintings I try to capture this vulnerability. One day we go there and it is always as it has been: the next time, it's gone forever.'
