Artist Statement

The ripple of the tide, patterns forming in the sand as the water rises then retreats.

Shallow waves moving broken shells, sea grasses, seaweed, and tiny blue bottles back and forth.

The clouds move across the sky, shapes continually changing.

Grasses and flowers bobbing about in the breeze.

The cool breeze off the water gusts around my body. With each step my feet delight in the texture of the sand and waves as they ebb and flow.

These fleeting moments of contemplation and connection can restore me, allow me to cope, refocus, sigh, and breathe.
