Water is a never ending source of inspiration for me. Each day, one painting after another, I seek an ever deepening understanding of its essence. The more I observe, the more it seems there is for me to discover. The ocean in particular has captured my imagination. The surface designs, deep waters and shore breaks offer an infinite array of beautiful complexity. Ever changing and omnipresent, the ocean is such a universal part of our existence. There is a certain feeling of connectedness when sitting by its shores. The endless rhythm, power and mystery of the sea course through our very veins.
Choosing to explore water and its components through my paintings has been an enlightening and uplifting gift that I enjoy sharing. Thank you for taking the journey with me.”
