Married to the Sea
Married to the Sea is commentary on a statement that had often crossed my mind. What attached me to the idea of being married to the sea was its classical and romantic overtones as well as its application as a method of existence in a variety of contexts.

I wanted the sense of adventure and tenacity of a
voyage in a ship. I also wanted to create the sea's poor wife in layers of lace and water.

With this piece I feel like I have succeeded in making a vector painting. Below is a gif with the full process from reference, outlines, to the creation of my own lines and layered pattern and color.
