Taking flight into my next collection, this piece sets the stage. "Explorer" uses movement and color as it's cornerstones while the Green Sea Turtle takes center stage, meant to grab the viewers attention with her eyes. This piece took shape after researching the thousand mile journey some Sea Turtles undertake in order to return to the beach they were born on to lay their own eggs.
After years exploring the deep sea, growing and learning, female sea turtles will inevitably return home. Using vibrant colors and exuberant movement, "Explorer" focuses on evoking feelings of elation, joy, and confidence while moving forward in ones life. I imagine sea turtles as the ultimate adventurers... wings up and ready to take on the unknown.
