Birds and butterflies are flying out of paper, tree branches and glorious flowers emerge gracefully and circles within circles swirl endlessly to infinity.

About the Product
I love the ocean and all the creatures that live beneath the waves. I have over 1000 dives and I've never once been bored in the deep blue. These beautiful Italian marbled papers perfectly capture the many different blues and greens of the ocean depending on the time of day and the depth of the waters. With this piece I have captured my love and respect of the ocean, as well as my utter joy, serenity and inner peace when I'm diving into the depths.
To add movement and depth to this artwork, I have raised each ring of fish in increasing height, creating a subtle funnel.My aim of this artwork is to inspire people to respect and admire the oceans, and protect the creatures that live in them. The artwork comes framed in the white wooden box frame shown in the photograph.
