I look at the night sky and think about the bigger universe we inhabit and our place in it.

As a sort of water creature, I am passionate about bodies of water, our oceans, and the extraordinary life that exists there.

I like that we were creatures who lived in the sea before we figured out how to crawl up onto land and breathe the air.

I am awed by the idea that the carbon of the stars can still be found in our bones.

My play with 'mirroring' these entities- the cosmos and the ocean, comes from my interest in how different 'systems' in nature reflect one another, both physically and metaphorically.

Jellyfish are spaceships and the Milky Way lives in those phosphorescent tidal currents...
