Candice Davis is a watercolour painter who currently lives in Houston, Texas, but pines for her former home of Hawaii. Her experiences as a surfer and outdoors enthusiast inspired her to capture these stunning images of waves, breaks, and pipelines from around the world.

Davis balances areas of dynamic, intricate pattern with voids of empty space, contrasting the energy and peace that comes from her practice of surfing. Combined with the brilliant jewel colours of the island, Davis creates mesmerizing, meditative compositions that draw you into her effervescent ocean world.
