Abstract

The ocean is the common theme in my work. There is a calmness that comes over me when I sit on the beach and look off into the distance, over an infinite seascape peppered with gulls and shrimp boats. This is a safe place to be but it always leaves me wondering about what lies beneath the surface of the water, below what I can see and below what I know. Time and time again, I come back to the power and mystery of the ocean and all that it symbolizes. To explore the question what lies below?, I create surface tension in my artwork with exaggerated texture, and I juxtapose images of water with scenes from my life.
