The series ‘Under the Sea’ is a natural extension from ‘Shallow Waters’ and is inspired by the microcosms of our beautiful marine world. There is as much to be appreciated in the forests of kelp and cities of rock of our cooler waters as there is in the more famous and dazzling marine life of the Great Barrier Reef.
To me life in Melbourne means walks along Brighton beach with family and friends, and weekend getaways on the Peninsula. Water is so fascinating for children - who doesn’t remember how an entire day can pass in the blink of an eye when you’re a kid on a beach.
The many hours I have spent enjoying the shallow waters of Rye beach inspired the 'shallow waters' series, and the gorgeous Victorian coastline is a place I hope I will always be able to call home.
