Breathe

Medium: Tissues, Papers & Cardstock from Japan & Italy on Illustration Board

Framed Size: Approximately 25.5″ x 35″

Technique:  Hand ripping and paper cutting

Description:  I’ve always been drawn to seascapes and shores.  I find the watching the water’s waves allows me to destress and be in the moment.  “Breathe” allows me to recreate that experience on paper.

Apart from the footprints, I hand ripped the papers to maintain the organic raw feeling.  I experimented with different gluing techniques to recreate  subtleties of depth.
