I painted this series when I was lost. I'd spent too much time thinking about what other people wanted from me, and I forgot why I started creating to begin with.
I returned to the core of myself - the moments that made me who I am. Those hours peering over the side of a sailboat, trying to memorize the waves against the hull, staring deep down into the cobalt ocean.
This series is about going to those places that can be frightening in ourselves, facing the darkness that feels so deep and endless, because those depths make us who we are.
