    Gay Forster 

    I paint using watercolour, my subjects are mainly the sea, beaches, boats, figurative, portraits, animals,   I love the sea and have always lived close to it. My father ran a Boatyard in Crosshaven, Southern Ireland when I was young and undertook a lot of boat salvage, I still have many memories of being taken out to watch some of the salvage work in all weathers and heavy seas. We lived in a house called Thunder Rock which was built virtually on the beach which was amazing, although I was  too young to fully appreciate it at the time. I am now retired from the Hospitality business and am still lucky enough to still live very near the sea in West Sussex so have constant material and variable weather conditions available for me to paint.
    I like my paintings to tell a story, my work is mainly semii-abstract and often a little humour doesn't go amiss, they are all one offs, each piece is unique and stands alone.  I get my inspiration from something I have seen, a place I have visited, or a photograph or article I have read that stirs up an idea or vision, then the imagination takes over and anything could happen. My work is is varied and I hope interesting and a bit different.
