In 2015 I became fascinated with waves, the geometry, the force, as well as the power, volume and sound of the vast amount of water that makes up the oceans of our planet. As the fragility of our environment has become direr, my interest in depicting the ocean has evolved from the aesthetic and the beautiful to a more political interest that includes documentation.
Through a federal grant and my affiliation with the Museum School, I began painting murals in public spaces in the Boston area and I completed over 80 mural commissions nationally with sites that include Louis of Boston and Timberland in San Francisco.
