Artist Statement: Nature is the most powerful tool to remind us of where we have come from and where we are in the present moment. I incorporate elements of nature as an essential part of my creative process, which involves connecting to the land, elements, and/ or energies of the place I am in. My work is often ephemeral and meant to have a life-cycle.
Wave Imprints invite a quiet, mindful experience with each piece. The images depicted on each work are created when a drop of ink on paper meets a wave. They are then left to dry on the foreshore.
It all started out of curiosity of what the ocean would paint. On a cold November day back in 2016, I knelt at the foreshore with ink on paper, and waited for a wave to grace the paper’s surface. That moment, being with the waves, connected me back to exactly what I needed- nature, the sea, and connection.
I continued to visit the ocean often, and tuned in by sitting in mindful witnessing of my surroundings. During one of my visits, I came across charcoal from a past beach fire. I collected this charcoal, and turned it into ink.
Since that fateful day, my connection to the materials I use and the land base I am on has grown infinitely deeper. Wave imprints invite mindful witnessing, and bring a connection to the ocean wherever you may be.
