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.
