I often roam the beach collecting any gifts that the sea has to offer. Shells pounded and carved into endless varieties of curves and swirls, wood sanded and silver with age, glass smoothed and shaped anew - all of these things are my treasures.
Back in the studio with my finds, I experiment with different arrangements. There will be a special one that inspires me to get my sketchbook. From there, the artwork takes on a life of its own, growing and changing as it travels from small sketch to full size creation.
I find joy in my finished pieces and hope that they bring the viewer the same sense of serenity that they evoke in me!
