My greatest source of artistic inspiration is what I find in Mother Nature. She has done all of the design work, it's up to me, the artist, to interpret it. I have been a beachcomber all of my life, and I began an artistic journey in 2008, creating sculptures based on the seashell fragments that I find washed up on a beach. I feel as if Mother Nature is nurturing my artistic soul here. **Of special note: This is an interactive piece, encouraging the viewer to freely move the shell form around in relation to the base.
