For the artist, creating art allows one to be transported in time and space, to travel beyond the four walls of the studio. These waterscapes were created in the studio working from sketches previously done in nature, as well as from visual references and memory.
The sea has always been a part of my life and work; I grew up in Cape Town near a wild and stormy sea and live today on the calm Mediterranean Sea. My husband was a ship captain in the merchant marines and sometimes I would accompany him on his journeys. Today we often sail the Aegean Sea where Meltemi winds can blow fiercely for days.
