    There's nothing quite like that first glimpse of the ocean after a long drive. This sweet little sea/land/sky scape is created with that moment in mind. The view of the coastline is for so many of us, soul restoring and heart warming. When you've been through difficult times, dark days, painful trials, and long periods of suffering, just the thought of that first glimpse is enough to give hope. I guess that's why I get giddily happy when I see the is the place that brings healing, comfort and encouragement. And I never tire of seeing it. 


    Some of the places I visit on the South Coast you can't see the ocean from the road. But the minute you get out of the car you hear the waves...smell the salty air...feel the breeze against your skin. Anticipation builds as you wander up grassy banks and down sandy paths and then there it is...the gorgeous aqua blue waters, heralded by a spectacular sky. And exhale. That first glimpse is always the best feeling.


    NB: While every effort is made to capture the true colours and details of my artwork, every screen is different and art viewed online does not do my work justice. Slight differences may be evident between a screen image and the true tone of my work which is more vivid and beautiful in reality. Scale may also be slightly off due to the insitu art app used, so please ensure you measure your space. Thank you!
