I was born in NY but grew up in the country with streams and woods in my backyard. Trees and water have always been my companions, my solace. Right after my mom died, I went to Newport Beach and was meditating and staring at the ocean when the sun glinting off the crashing waves suddenly became stars and nebulae. It took me about six months of working on the image I took to make it look like what I'd felt. And since then, I've had a bunch of similar experiences. They became Wave Nebulae - these images - and they formed the path for Light Stream and for Tiny Immensity.
