From the artist

This artwork is inspired by my childhood memories in Scotland snorkelling and playing at the seaside. My mother and I would collect seaweed, shells and other items along the beach and use the sand as a canvas to lay out the items and create a scene. I chose vibrant and emotional colours of joy, as I remember discovering the underwater life and the colours being magical. I like the idea of keeping the vibrant tones as a key aesthetic of the artwork to represent my younger self’s interpretation.
