Drea’s work evolves around the ocean landscape, passing time and repeat patterns in nature. Seduced by the complexities of water and geometric forms in the ocean or surrounding areas, She seeks to to create a visual representation of these elements. The act of elevating the objects from their stationary existence by removing them from their original context is something that interests her. When found objects are removed from the environment in which they exists, the most banal object transcends itself to become exotic. By integrating man-made debris she hopes to aide in promoting environmental stewardship through art.
