I lived for two and a half years in the coastal village of Elk, California. Population 250. These are observations of the ocean, her movements and constant changes in color.

For most of my life I have resided near or by the ocean. I feel very related to the ocean, it is part of my family, and I think of her as being my true mother.

 "Ocean Series" is the manifestation of being emotionally affected by both the oil spills and the knowledge of how plastics have been and continue to be dumped into our planet's great bodies of water. Additional factors such as massive slaughters of marine mammals and the Fukushima Daiichi meltdown contributed to the tone of this work.
