OCEANUS is a new collection of paintings inspired by my love of the sea. I've been dreaming of pieces like this for a while now, and this summer I gave my inner artist the gift of time and space to start exploring a new series.
Time, sacred studio time, is so precious to me. And space, in the form of canvas, is always a high value commodity. But I am in love with the new paintings that are starting to emerge, and they are worth every minute. Explore Oceanus.
These pieces are a combination of a few influences.
The sensation of gliding through the water, whether swimming or paddling. (If you follow me on Insta or Facebook, you know I love both.)
The beauty of underwater flora and fauna. I am obsessed with the way they wave in the water. They are truly the jewels of the sea.
Concern about our coral reefs, which are priceless treasures and vital to the health of the planet.
The pure joy of spending time in the Caribbean. Colors gleaned from my travels there are popping up all over these works.
These magical underwater paintings have a weightless feeling, and whimsical details invite the viewer to look closer and make new discoveries.
