Artist Statement
Utterly alien-like life at the bottom of the ocean has inspired my art work. Creatures of the deep sea represent the unknown. Scientists constantly bring in new discoveries, these animals push the boundaries of the uncharted. Life is believed to have originated in the ocean. Deep sea organisms are forever at the precipice of discovery and evolution. These creatures evoke the weird, the delicate and the deadly. Who is to say what exists or has existed? What fleeting lifeforms may we never glimpse? Brought to life in splashes of mixed media on paper, I continue creating amalgamations of imagination and nature. Ideas of harmony and discord strike relationships between fragility and ingenuity of what nature and humans create together.
