Shell & Shapes

The Shell and Shapes series came about after several trips to Central America to complete 2 mural projects. During the stay I collected shells and memorabilia from the beaches at low tide. The connection with these found objects and the human cultural history of using such items for monetary, ritual and hierarchical purposes resonated with me.

By using these items in proficiency drawings and combining them with highly stylized ancient forms, I was able to create a simplistic modern look that has connections throughout human history.
