Special reminders of time and place, that transport you to a state of nostalgia, forward to aspiration, or to a vision of calm, far from daily stresses.
It's a scientifically proven fact that spending time in and around the ocean can reduce stress and change levels of certain hormones in the body - I have no doubt that this is true and if you've spent time in or around the ocean I'm sure you agree.
The art I create is a tribute to the wild places on earth. In documenting these natural instances, my process becomes a rediscovery, an unrushed observation of locations, and moments in time.
