Larger Works From The Sea

One of my hero artists, the great Alberto Giacometti once said, “The object of art is not to reproduce reality, but to create a reality of the same intensity.”  

With the pieces below, this has been my intent.  About six years ago, I became captivated with painting seashells and have not stopped painting them since.  I am literally kept awake some nights in bed, staring at the ceiling, as their imagery reverberates in my mind. This intensity and brilliance acts as a constant reminder, that each one of us posses our own, innate, uniqueness.
