I have been diving with my husband for many years, from the crazy tides and swift currents off the coast of Mozambique, to the Red Sea, the WWII wrecks of Truk Lagoon, Australia’s Great Barrier Reef, and always back to Indonesia. The waters surrounding the Indonesian Islands are rich in aquatic life, but our favorite by far, is the area around Sulawesi. These paintings celebrate a fraction of the wondrous creatures we have seen underwater on both day and night dives.
