Haunted By Water

Haunted by Water is the ongoing result of my overwhelming allure that water elicits to me both visually, physically and subliminally.

For me, being in water provides the quintessential separation from the rest of the earthly world while providing a wholly liberating escape. Mainly autobiographical, I often highlight a single female figure, celebrating womanhood while at the same time mirroring the significance of isolation essential to portraying both her empowerment and vulnerability as I both occupy and honor the natural water-world. I am literally haunted by water, not only for its overwhelming allure, holistic reprieve, and visual complexity, but also more importantly for its ultimate significance, as water is indeed the essential tonic of life itself.
