    Low bas relief: shell plaster, Venetian plaster on canvas

    For me, inspiration comes from many places -- the natural world, archaeology, history, and science. 'Fossilized Nautilus' was born from my love of paleontology. I love thinking about the world as it was and capturing those elements to bring into our own spaces. FN is based on a actual dactylioceras fossil from the Jurassic period. (This technically is not a nautilus, but 'dactylioceras' isn't as well-know or sexy.) Such a fantastic specimen would most likely be in a museum or expensive collection -- thus I would never be able to own one, so I created one instead. FN is intended to be a beautiful art piece on its own merits that recalls a time before our own. I hope the image makes you ponder our world.
