I was lucky enough to be given the Wildlife Trusts Undersea Wildlife Art Award which was set up to celebrate the abundant life off the coast of the UK. I chose to explore the recently discovered chalk shoal off the North Norfolk coast. My diving training went smoothly but I only had the opportunity to dive at the end of September. These are my first attempts at drawing 5m underwater during my first ever sea dive. My drawings and subsequent sculptures will be on display at this year’s exhibition The Natural Eye that runs from 1st-11th November at the Mall Galleries in London.
