The peaceful, calming, powerful and healing nature of water is exemplified through Sean’s art photography…
Over a decade ago, while witnessing Sean’s swimming sessions at the YWCA Lower Cape Fear, I was introduced to his profound artwork and deep connection with water. Sean generously donated a piece to our Fluid Recovery/Flow Motion program, a water fitness initiative for breast cancer survivors. Drawing from their experiences, Sean’s artwork served as a beacon of inspiration, especially during the land segments of their classes.
My wife, Katie, and I were so moved by Sean’s portrayal of water in its myriad forms that we chose one of his pieces for our daughter’s nursery—a serene representation of a sunrise against a calm ocean. A testament to its tranquility, the artwork remains in her room, eight years later. Subsequently, we acquired a vivid piece of a crashing wave that Sean had contributed to a YWCA fundraiser. Our most recent acquisition, inspired by a mesmerizing photo Sean shared on Facebook, depicts a moonlit ocean with dunes and sea oats in the forefront. This triptych masterpiece now adorns a wall in our new home. Interestingly, the new occupants of our previous home were keen to purchase it, but its deep significance to us led us to retain it.
A heartfelt thank you to Sean for “Watering the Walls” of our lives and the community. His passion and reverence for water are both evident and infectious.
