I come from a long line of sign writers and am happiest with a brush and some paint! Add
paint to fabric and I get really excited!!

Oceans of comfort

I have always been drawn to the ocean, as have most members of my family. We seem to have a strong link to our ancestors who either owed their lives to the sea, or travelled over it to settle in a land new to them. I get much comfort from the rhythm of the waves, the continuity of the tides, the apparent simplicity of a complex force of nature.

Wherever I travel, I seek out water.

This is the Atlantic Ocean on the southeast side of Iceland. The beach is black lava sand, the water temperature is less than 9 degrees and the ice has broken off the glaciers of Jokulsarlon - the famous glacier river lagoon. This ice would be approximately 1000 years old. Incredible indeed. And oddly comforting.


  1. you should do something of the Hopewell Rocks....gorgeous scencery

  2. Anywhere on the Bay of Fundy is beautiful, isn’t it? A friend of mine made a small piece based on the flower pots for one of our Sistahood challenges. It is a wonderful source of inspiration - thanks for the idea!

  3. If I ever could travel, I'd love to visit Iceland!

  4. My interest in Iceland peaked when I was in elementary school and we studied Erik the Red! So, getting to visit the country was a dream in the making for me. It is a beautiful land - nature at its best!
