This work was initially derived from the collection of the shells the artist inherited from her grandmother. When she stayed with her Nan and Pop, they would explore their collection of beautiful shells and corals. This gave rise to a love for the shapes and patterns of marine life. When she began making, these shapes unconsciously emerged; fluid lines and waves of wire, the gentle movement of the plants and animals under the water by the swell and waves.
