I love the combination of realism and imagination, turning what is natural into something whimsical. I find stories in everything, from faces to the way light plays in water.
"Orcas Ascending" is part of a series that explores the wonder I feel when swimming underwater; the silence, the peace, and the mysteries of the deep. Because I used acrylic for this piece, I was able to use sea salt and achieve a watercolor-like affect, allowing the colors to swirl and shift as they dried.
