The ocean has always played a big role in my life. Always present. Always mysterious. Always inviting.
From childhood summer vacations filled with long, sunny, salty days to an adolescence of riding waves and epic wipe outs - the ocean has always inspired me.
From my teen years to my early adult life my creative outlet (and my forte) was always painting and drawing. The ocean and waves always a constant theme in my work.
After becoming a mother I found myself longing for creative time - but I no longer had long stretches of time to carefully mix my oil paints and build the layers I was always so fond of.
I would have never guessed photography was going to fill the creative gap so beautifully. And amidst weeks filled with client work I finally took some time to wake up before the sun and head to the warm sea I love so much and create. Create for me.
