A breakwater is a barrier built out into a body of water to protect a coast or harbor from the force of the waves. Thinking about this, I wound up thinking about the protecting nature of a breakwater. The way that it shields the shore from the overwhelming force of the waves. I was struck by this because too often we are overwhelmed by the forces in our lives. The attempt to balance work, family, house and friends can create a cacophony of demands that threaten to defeat us at every turn. Breakwater is a reminder to protect that which is most important, and to let the rest wash over us without worry.

A Note from the Artist
I am deeply inspired by the forces of water in all it’s forms. From the greatest tsunami to the tiniest tear drop, I think the ebb and flow of water reflects fascinating commentary on our lives ashore. For every ripple, there’s a measure of excitement tinged with uncertainty. For every serene wash of bubbling seafoam upon the shore, a fascinating conversation of ephemeral beauty and microscopic details can be had.
As humans we are so hurried and urgent, yet the tides continue their unceasing paths, swept by the currents, encouraged by the moon. The waves beckon the imagination of sentimental souls, rushing against the shores, forever changing the lands we walk.
I forge these artworks to uplift and inspire. It is my humble intention to enrich the world with uniquely elegant wearable art. With every piece I create, I hope to make someone stop and say, that’s beautiful.
I hope you enjoy Breakwater.
