my art, water is a frequent and symbolic theme. The force of water
has shaped our planet's surface for billions of years and created
some of the most awe-inspiring landscapes. Watersheds provide us with
the essentials of life, helping to quench our thirst, water our crops,
provide habitat for sealife, and power our cities. Pigment, suspended
in liquid or water, allows the artist to paint a picture of water.
inspired to create this series by the deep connection I've held with
bodies of water. Growing up along Lake Michigan, I learned to respect
and appreciate the power of water to impact our senses, to caress
our bodies, soothe our ears, entertain and delight us, and even pose
the risk and fear of death in deep, dark, and cold water.
