AQUABET is an original art series derived from coastal living that embodies the 26 letters of the American Alphabet. The series continues to be published in a variety of artistic formats from personal note cards to fine stationary to educational tear sheets to custom orders in the interior design and home furnishings market. The letters have also been crafted as a medium for storytelling in community development. Thereby, strengthening old relationships and building new ones to reveal the soul of a community. Like the constant nature of the ocean tide, the letters continue to ebb and flow from one unique purpose to another brilliant idea or platform.
