ShellART is a collection of Sculptural Compositions of Sea Shells on Canvas. One of a Kind, Genuine, Precious, Timeless Gems of the Sea Crafted into Works of Art.

There is wisdom in the geometry of each sea shell, holding within it the life force of the oceans.

Inspired by the sound and movement of the waves to shore, continuously replenishing compositions in the sand, I began my decades long endeavor. The handpicked shells range from broken, rough and tumbled to perfect selections. Many compositions transform the sea shells into flowers. The three-dimensional quality of the shell compositions is mosaic, collage and sculptural, capturing both exuberance and serenity. In composing I am directed by sinuous curves, movement and flow found in the organic undulating harmony of nature.
