Georgia Clayton is fascinated by Beach Glass and how each shoreline offers different kinds. Broughty Ferry beach has mostly angular shaped pieces which are very good for her work.
She is influenced by Cornish artist Alfred Wallis who used recycled materials and a limited palette to produce his naïve creations. After a background of precise drawing and painting she now challenges herself to depict local views of Broughty Ferry and beyond using this material presented on Scottish slate. She also creates various nautical or seaside themed pictures inspired by her beach finds on the local sea shore. Landmarks in Broughty Ferry she has depicted include buildings, parks, churches, gardens and of course Broughty Castle and the River Tay itself.
