Coral Whispers was created to "Save Beach Species".
It is an ecologically friendly approach through art to protect natural resources, particularly of the ocean and beaches.
   
Ocean Energy introduces eccentric fish with unique characteristics in hopes to connect viewers, especially children, to the wonders and beauty of the ocean. Using art and appealing to the creativity in children, Ocean Energy hopes for children and young adults to better connect with and appreciate their environment.
   
The "Patchy Bird" series features brightly quilted patterns on imaginary birds, playing in a fantasy world.

Patchy Birds have cheerful, easygoing, and friendly personalities.
With a group of family or friends, they help one another and work hard
to gather food and make nests.

They are happy birds! 

   


The "Wave of the Universe" is an unidentified, vast and colorful world, filled with rich resources.

 

   
   

Message from artist,

Our outreach through the arts program is committed to providing better visualized tools. We hope to raise awareness over the issues surrounding marine and beach environments through multiple approaches and characters.
As an artist, I would like to encourage children and young adults to learn about the actual state of the ecology using artwork that have clear messages.
Nature gives us energy, teaches us, and embraces us. In return, we need to value, protect, and most importantly, respect our beautiful nature.
