My fascination with seagrass habitats began last year when I stumbled on a book by Fred Short called “World Atlas of Seagrass”. The cover of the book had a photo of a cute green sea turtle swimming around seagrass beds. I discovered that seventy percent of marine life depend on seagrass, that it is vital to the survival of endangered marine life. The interconnectedness of a vast number of species sheltered, fed and protected by seagrass habitats is an inspiration for my abstract landscapes. Color, mark making and patterns play an important roles in my paintings. I use saturated and soft colors evoke sensations of something familiar, of home, nature, and water. I intend to bring the viewers attention to the importance of sea grass globally in the survival of endangered marine sea life.
