15.5”x5.5” mixed media on woodThis one was inspired from a little drive up in the hills in between Uvita and Dominical Costa Rica! There was this tree on the edge of the cliff framing the unbelievable view of the ocean. Each day, experience, trip, friendship comes growth strength and beauty. The roots of the tree are connected deep into Mother Earth getting nutrients, sort of like our past and who we are. The branches growing so high into the sky receiving the energy of the sun and moon just like we do with greater knowledge, wisdom and experiences as we coast through this life. The tree also renews itself through the seasons, the leaves fall off the branches, just as we let go of things or people that are not good for us.Growth

    ARTIST STATEMENT

    My journey as an artist began at a young age growing up in a Greek-American family and living off the coast of West Africa. My inspiration comes from my travels, nature, surf and local culture. Since I was constantly traveling as a child, I don’t really identify with one place or culture. I am on a constant journey and my art is a product of that journey. Some call my work Surf Art, Beach Art, Yoga Art and more. To me it's my art, my emotions and what I am going through at the time. My process starts with patterns, words, numbers, letters, and multiple layers of color washes and various mediums with an image evolving from the background. I love creating local beach imagery in Texas and imagery based on my travels and local surf culture. The best part of being an artist is seeing someone feel a connection with a piece knowing that it takes them somewhere or a moment in time that I captured of them. Seeing that excitement and smile on their face is the best feeling to me as an artist.
