This luscious ocean palette was inspired by the shores of Surfer's Paradise - Gold Coast Australia, which also happens to be where I was raised.
The beach meant a moment of peace and quiet. There were times in my life when there wasn't much of it. When I wanted to escape the chaos, I would always end up finding myself here. This place gave me a sense of freedom away from all the things that demanded control over me.
My blissful self induced illusion - a paradise within my own mind. A reminder that I still had control over me. Coming here meant that maybe I was still worthy of hope for something more.
