Artist Statement

"This project is born from my admiration and curiosity for these amazing invertebrate creatures. I wanted to create a voice for Coral, to raise awareness that there is a whole magical world under the water that is hugely important to the life and survival of many marine species, our oceans, us humans, and the entire planet. Each letter represents a different fact on Coral and the geometric lines and particles around them are actually trash bits referring to the on-growing issue with plastic and garbage all over the world. Hopefully, I can inspire you to strive toward a better future for us all. Small steps begin big changes."
