From my studio windows on Whidbey Island, I have a wonderful view of the shipping lanes on Puget Sound. I enjoy watching an amazing variety of ships and small boasts go by, from one-person kayaks to 3000 passenger cruise ships and enormous container boats. My artwork in the Paper Transformed Show is inspired by this parade of ships and by the active sea life underneath these waters. My imaginary underwater creations, "Octopodocus Sea Anemone," "Carnival Sea Anemone Plastica," and others, have learned to adapt to the plastic debris that finds its way into their waters. They have morphed into hybrid sea life that mutated and enveloped this plastic waste.
Above all, this underwater activity, the "Mother Transport" and "Mini Transports" float by in the shipping lanes of Puget Sound.
