"Gather a shell from the strown beach and listen at its lips."
~Dante Gabriel Rossetti


"Her fingers moved among barnacles and mussels, blue-black sharp edged...surrounded by bouquets of stinging anemones and purple bursts of spiny sea urchins." 
~Janet Finch 'White Oleander'

Seawashed Art 
Sea Chimes are now in my
