My love affair with water started as far back as I have memory. Living in the Northeast, it doesn’t take long to get to the ocean. Summer trips on Cape Cod and time spent at my best friend’s family cottage on the coast of Maine sealed my obsession with the sea.
This series began in Summer 2019 when I was creating the Window Series and I had inquiries for the unfinished paintings. This idea ruminated all year as I worked out rough sketches on my iPad and reworked until the modern seascapes felt like Jengadi Jean.
It is my hope this series feels like a breath of fresh (and salty) air all year round. With hues of seaglass and pops of bright boardwalk colors, when you squint, you’re transported back to that layered horizon by the sea.
