The inspiration for my work is borne of the sea: playful, sublime, honest, raw, contemplative, fluid. To feel its meaning one need only look inward and breathe into that sacrosanct space that is full of life, joy, sorrow, bravery, mystery, rebirth. For me, sitting before the ocean is a reminder of the dignity, beauty, and grace that is this life. It is the space for quiet contemplation, reflection, and rejuvenation. To know this space is to know my work.
