Medium - Linocut print
On my weekly beach walks, I pick up ocean treasures that have washed ashore. I am deeply fascinated and inspired by the intricate details of these objects - shells, feathers, rocks, etc. Assembling them together into one collection tells the story of a peaceful day at the beach.
