As a surfer, I take in a lot of surf photography. Women aren't depicted as often or in the same way as men are, so when I find images that emphasize the athleticism and joy of female athletes, I celebrate them. In flipping through some photos Chris Gurney took of pro surfer Stephanie Gilmore, I decided to see how well I could depict that same energy and passion via a completely different medium.
Artist and author based in Chicago. When I can't express myself through my words, I turn to brushes and paint. Occasionally, out of that chaos something beautiful appears. Those are the pieces I share here. I've already received the gift the Muse intended for me -- now it's time for someone else to benefit from that flash of inspiration.
