Artistically, I am fascinated by the swirling colors and patterns on the waters surface. I am entranced by sparkles and soothed by swells. For me, the ocean feels like home. I basically grew up on the water, exploring the beautiful and wild San Juan Islands with my family. Later, I lived on my own sailboat for a number of years. There is something so comforting about floating and being rocked by the sea. Maybe it is because we are mostly water, it beckons us to return to our natural, relaxed state, free from the limitations of solid ground.It is this peaceful feeling which I hope to convey within this series.
