Marine biology and coral reefs serve as the main source of visual inspiration for my abstract artworks. As climate change and pollution destroy our waters, vast colonies of coral are being wiped out. There is so much beauty to preserve on our planet. My entire life I've loved both science and art and I hope that my art inspired people to see the beauty in our natural world. By combining blown, sandblasted glass and silk organza through a process of accumulation, my work begins to reference my passion for sea life.
