After the Tide

An enduring interest in nature and the desire to educate people to the beauty that exists even in death led to this series of drawings. Rather than searching for that perfect shell or polished glass, I find elegance and fascination with the debris left behind when the tide retreats. Pieces of kelp, bits of sea plants and the odd shards from shells form a tableau expressing the importance and beauty of “ocean trash” and its place in the bigger ecological picture.
