From the artist

The sea, always there, connects those who are drawn to it, intricate beings captivated by the beauty that surrounds us. Its unwavering presence acts as a stabling influence, like a rock. People come together where nothing else matters, leaving their differences and worries behind. The fishing is not important. It is the warm fuzzies we embrace whilst being there that count.
