Water has long been equated with the feminine aspects of creation, nature and spirituality. The ocean is life giving, powerful, sensual, changing and mysterious. As has been done in mythology, I relate the beauty of water to feminine deity, and in doing so I discovered a technique that I haven't seen before. I use rare precious materials to adorn my Muses such as genuine mother of pearl and real abalone shell. These beautiful materials combined with the dichotomy of the power and softness of the muses reflects my interpretation of the sea in relation to femininity.
