She persisted in her quest to reach the shore and sing the anthem of the sea


She persisted in her quest to reach the shore and sing the anthem of the sea

For several years I have been taking pictures of the ocean, especially the Pacific, crashing on the shore. As a wee girl my elderly father would take me to the beach after school, even on foggy, stormy days.  I have since loved those deserted beaches and the powerful waves thundering as they reach the cliffs and land.  

I dyed the fabrics for the distant and near ocean, and used commercial batiks as well as my hand-dyeds for the cliffs and breaking waves.
