love letters

These paintings comprise my love letters to the ocean. Each piece is lovingly rendered, mostly with palette knives, but also with brushes, rags, and fingers. For me, surfing was the catalyst of a deep appreciation for the ocean. In return, the ocean has offered me challenge, calm, triumph, fear, beauty, and healing. I hope that these paintings might serve the viewer as a reminder of what the ocean has meant to them or spark a love affair of their own. please inquire to purchase one of these paintings or visit our shop.
