My fondest memories of my childhood are boating around the San Juan Islands in WA.I basically grew up on the water; catching crab with my brothers, sailing with my father, and cruising from island to island in the summer. In my twenties, I lived on my own sailboat exploring even further. Recently I had the amazing opportunity to work on a charter yacht in Alaska for a summer. All of these experiences only deepened my love of the ocean.
Artistically, I am fascinated by the swirling patterns on the waters surface. I love the evening calm when the sunset colors are reflected as constantly morphing circles. I am entranced by sparkles and soothed by swells. There is something so comforting about floating and being rocked by the sea. It is this peaceful feeling which I hope to convey within this series.
