There was a time when I felt deeply lost. I knew I wanted to live a life of creation but I didn't know how. This is how the wanderlust spirit was born in me and I left home to travel around my country, I was 18 years old.

Underwater collection of watercolour paintings inspired by the sea. CreativeIngrid | IngridSanchez, London 2017. Holding flowers with a floral tattoo and a turquoise painting by watercolour artist CreativeIngrid | Ingrid Sanchez.

My feet took me to the sea, always to the sea. Eventually I arrived at a small island in the south of Mexico where I stayed for a long time to explore the reefs and corals, but also where I made a living with my paintings for the very first time.

Eighteen years later and life took me back to this small island, though this time it was a long holiday in the company of my husband. I immediately reconnected with the blues of the sea and the warm salty water; old friends were waiting for me and the colorful delicate corals were brighter than ever.

I came back to London to paint the sea the way I felt it. The 'Underwater' collection was born from this extraordinary experience of feeling the blues of an endless ocean through all of my senses.
