My love affair with the sea began at birth in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. My mom and aunt would take all us kids to the beach, find a shady spot under the pier, and set up the playpen. We'd dig in the sand or take a nap under a gauzy blanket cooled by a tropical breeze. Then extend the relaxation into the evening ... grilling dinner oceanside, squeezing every drop of light from the sun until it fell below the horizon at dusk.

So for me, images of the beach evoke specific feelings ... calm peacefulness, moments of complete relaxation, nothing to do, but turn your face toward the sun, dig your toes into the sand, and surrender to the shore!

Photography provides the opportunity to translate those warm, tranquil feelings onto paper and bring it all home, wherever in the world you happen to be.

My goal with Beach Bum Chix is to convey the peace of life along the coast from the perspective of an authentic beach bum. I'm on a mission to help you re-create the feeling of salty aired serenity in your home with beach photography, beach wall art, and other beach cottage home goods.

Take a moment to surf around and read the kind words some thoughtful people have used to describe my photography. Then head over to the shop and choose something that reflects who you are and what beautiful, peaceful things you want surrounding you.  

If you need anything, I'll kick the sand off my feet and be right in to help.
