“When I experienced diving for the first time I became enchanted with what I saw. There is so much beauty hiding beneath the waves and with this project I wish to bring some of that beauty back out of the ocean. As an individual, I can take action to change the fate of our world’s oceans. As an artist I feel responsible to present the story of our oceans in ways that engage a global audience and create awareness that leads to the necessary action.”
