Designs in the Sand by Andrés Amador

Wow! Imagine heading to the beach and finding one of these awe-inspiring designs imprinted upon the sand! Using a rake, and sometimes a rope as a compass, Andrés Amador creates large scale patterns on the northern California shoreline. He begins at low tide, working within a 2-hour window and using as much area as the beach has to offer.  Although his works of art will soon be washed into the sea, Andrés focuses on the process. The experience of creating and being within the art is most satisfying to him. Each day, he returns to another blank canvas. Andrés' passion for nature is evident; as he says, "Any day at the beach is a good one."
