Almost all of my art has to do with water! It is my passion, my joy and my concern. My art comes from memories of summers spent leaping and diving, doing cannonballs and back flips, participating in breath holding contests and looking up through chlorine filtered sunlight daydreaming. In water, on a universal level, we become weightless, buoyant and free both in mind and body. I never want to lose these wonderful feelings that the oceans provides us with. And so, we must become the guardians of our waters, of our environments and our behaviors, in order to protect them from ourselves. My art usually has an eco-art message, using recycled materials, humor, nostalgia and whimsy to get my point across.
