Wilhelm is an artist and an art teacher from Redding, California who has created numerous swimming pieces that can be purchased on

She explains her artwork, “I am a swimmer and love the feeling it surround me. In my free time, I swim at a local lake and well sell works to raise money for charity. At the end of each month, I give 25% of my profit to a charity.

The print above shows swimmers floating in a dark sea looking up a the sky. I am an open water swimmer and often look up at the sky as I swim. You can typically see birds and clouds floating above as I float underneath.”
