Laureen Vellante creates impressionistic photographs that depict the ocean with an abstract interpretation. She began as a photojournalist and approaches her oceanic subject matter by telling a visual story.

Her compositions reflect the constant ever-changing life of the sea. Be it calm or ferocious, fluid or still, her photographs capture the power and fury of the water’s peaceful beauty.

She has traveled up and down the East coast in all sorts of weather and different times of the day. Laureen draws inspiration from the sea, to which she is dedicated to give back and preserve.
