“ The recurrent theme in my work is the ocean. The subject matter itself has been painted, written about, and expressed forevermore, almost to the point of becoming a lost pattern on the wall. Yet every time I am confronted with the vastness and conjuring presence of this gargantuan mass over the horizon, I see myself as If I were seeing it all for the first time. I keep coming back over and over, a refreshing obsession, in a life long journey trying to make sense of it all. “
