It is my belief that the ocean has healing powers. It can liven up your day, wash away your troubles, caress your soul and bring a fresh mind. In my art, my brush strokes mimic expressions of water through how I paint, creating currents, splashes, fluidity and an overall sense of flow. Oceanic blues fill my palette evoking clarity and tranquility. To imitate the effects of water's refractive nature, I use metallics and translucent, glistening mylar. The harmony of these elements together creates my perception of the sea in relation to elated emotions and its magical mystery.
