Ocean and Desert

I love the ocean and my father loved the southwest so I’ve brought our images together in my current art studio collection on Etsy. I call it “Ocean and Desert” to reflect our two generations of making art.

I use my own photos as inspiration for my watercolor paintings. The ocean has many moods and there are always people, dogs, and birds at the water’s edge. I love exploring hidden pools and marine creatures sheltered in rocky shadows.

My father was a surveyor as a young man and he lived the cowboy life. Early in the 20th century there were still wild and remote areas of the west and southwest that needed to be mapped and measured.

Ted sketched what he saw and made zinc plate intaglio etchings. The plates are gone but a few prints and drawings remain; discolored, stained, and damaged. I scanned them on my computer and did what I could to digitally restore them. At times I felt his presence and asked for reassurance, as I admired every exacting and expressive line he drew.

My Etsy site is a way to share my paintings of the ocean and my father's love of the desert. Thank you for your interest in our art. I cherish the natural beauty that surrounds us and his art helps us remember our not-so-distant past and honor a way of life that is part of our American heritage.

    I've always loved to draw and paint, explore the outdoors, and see new places. It has been fun to bring my artwork and my dad's art into the Etsy marketplace. I love seeing folks enjoy the images and the apparel.

    Two sisters own this small, local print shop. They silkscreen the images onto the pillow cases using durable ink. I appreciate their quality work.
