Why fish? “Fish are incredibly exotic and bizarre, the perfect inspiration for creative work. I was fascinated to learn that the Wright Brothers developed flight by considering air to be a liquid. This directs my thoughts to the gassy giant planets, with their layers of dense atmosphere, and I dream of the different species that might exist swimming in each colored layer. I began creating art with the idea of pairing species of fish with planets, moons, and constellations.”
