My artwork explores the weird and wonderful life in our oceans. I weave intricate pen and ink drawings abundant with details that offer something new to discover each time you look at them! A keen scuba diver, my artwork draws upon my experiences underwater. My drawings explore an animal’s physiology, environment and role in its ecosystem, and the interconnectedness of ecosystems and all life on Earth.
 In the vast unknown realms of our world hidden under the waves, our imagination can really take flight. I bring together the micro and macro worlds of our oceans. Scale is an illusion, and I include playful, imaginative, sometimes surreal details. Lots of detail inevitably takes lots of time; my largest projects take six to eight months to complete and my smaller drawings take a couple of weeks.
