5 x 7 framed original pen and ink, beach stone and shell picture made with handpicked treasures from Rhode Island shores.
Collecting shells and beach combing began with our yearly family trips to the ocean when I was growing up. I have explored beaches around the world and was lucky to finally settle in a Rhode Island seaside town. I was inspired to create art from the items found on our local beaches to share my love of the ocean and its weathered treasures.
I especially love finding stones worn smooth by the tides that may seem lifeless, but bring out deep emotion when they become a family. I often wonder about the origins of a piece of sea glass, where it started before finding its way to this beach, who may have held it when it was a fully formed bottle.
Every piece of driftwood, every stone, and every piece of sea-glass has its own story that I will never know, but I bring them together to make a new story, maybe one that reminds you of your family, your friends and your time at the beach.
