The ebb and flow of the ocean tides serve to guide the growth of organic life forms with each instance realizing a moment of grace. Ever expanding, this encaustic mono-print series pulls its inspiration from the sea’s coral reefs.

We whisper to nature, holding the most intimate of conversations. As the creatures reveal themselves, a story unfolds sharing small truths.

An evolving collection of suspended sea creatures flaunting texture and color in the light of day. As night descends, their luminous nature reveals itself in a tranquil waltz.
