Nansi Bielanski

I grew up on southern California's beaches. Body surfing Encinitas. Surfing Huntington. Swimming Belmont Shore. My love of the ocean has always defined my experience as a California girl. A long day boogie boarding at Silverstrand, followed by a bonfire on the sand, was, and still is, my Heaven.

I am lucky to say that I was that kid who got too much sun, ate too many strips with cheese at lifeguard station 11, (or Zacks as the locals knew it), and the kid who got her bikini stolen at McGrath's State Beach while camping one long, endless summer.

I grew up wanting to capture these moments by painting and photographing these majestic beaches and seascapes. I painted my first award-winning beach scene when I was in third grade. True. My ribbon still hangs.

So The Ocean is my love.

Snorkeling the British Virgin Islands years later brought me to the conclusion that I must go deeper. Not only in my painting, but in my diving and in my commitment to protect the ocean that I love. i got Scuba Certified and entered the new world. My new sanctuary.

Diving was like seeing everything anew. Colors, rhythms, light, magic. Stillness, yet energy. Fleeting grunts and stoic sharks. Flow and calm.

Life. There to touch, but not.

This is 70% of our beautiful planet.
100% us.

It is an honor to meet and love this new world with its sweet anchovies and loving, powerful bait balls. And it is my great honor to paint and sculpt this brave new world.

In painting the colorful corals and sponges of the Caribbean dives, it brought back my love of flowers and still life. Inspiration from the deep spilled over onto dry land, and all objects began to look as if they were bathed in the magical light of Caribbean waters. The lines between wet and dry life forms began to blur, and sharing this new, enhanced way of seeing has become the goal of my work.
