Littoral: aquatic ecosystem, defined by the presence of sunlight.
I have lived by the sea for over 20 years, and thus, my life and work are infused with the essence of the seashore. Daily walks through the woods to the beach reveal an organic collage of intricate leaf and branch patterns, moss and lichen textures, seed pod and shell forms, illuminated by varying degrees of sunlight. This macro world is easily passed by in the fast pace of today’s world – I must slow down and pause to discover it. Using this pallet of inspiration, and keeping our human figures in mind, I create pieces that reflect my experiences in nature. My hope is that, through the act of wearing these pieces, they may also become your experiences, to carry with you into your own life.
