     The Ocean Series  has several sections, including  Undersea, Depth of the Sea , and  Formation  .            The oceans, ancient and current, are the source of my current work. I am drawn to the seas for many reasons, including its beauty and power, the illusion of limitlessness, its age and history, teeming life and countless mysteries. I am interested in creating a sense of the ocean through direct experience, through memory, through experiments and through research.           After reading “The Sea Around Us” by Rachel Carson – an incredibly visual writer -- I started working with the ocean as subject. I began drawing with a hyper-saturated sea salt solution and water-based paints. The resulting images are connected to my painting journals through the flow and feel of water. Salt and water are both key elements necessary for all life, and in these works they interact, creating the unexpected.           I work intuitively and in partnership with natural elements.
