Back to the Beach

I grew up under the influence of the ocean–between San Diego California and Guanacaste Costa Rica– and with a surfer for a dad–I was set.

Off to college at UC Santa Cruz–cold rocky oceans with great whites and localism–I turned to the forests, meadows, and gardens instead.

Fifteen years later and my amphibious attributes are growing back–several tidepool foraging dawns later–two surf-fishing days–and all the nature I could ever paint.
