Front cover of Painting the Sea

Gillian Petrie's lifetime of service to cancer relief lends authenticity to poignant poems of love and loss, and the care of the disabled. An enthralling collection that will delight admirers of this distinguished poet and humanitarian. 

As in Metamorphosis, her first collection, Painting the Sea draws on irreverent memories of a war childhood, and the joys of nature, friendship and love. The sea’s presence weaves through many of the poems “smelling of ozone sharpness / sharper than a screw of seaweed.” 

Painting the Sea launched in July 2020. You can order a copy for £7.50 (excluding postage) from this page or from Amazon
