This series of shells is inspired by and dedicated to people
who have lost their homes through natural disasters or wars.
The broken shells are a reminder of the fragility of homes and to remember that
the animal whose home this once was is no longer living. The insides are painted in
warm colors to evoke the creature who made the shell.  The structures of the
shells resonates with patterns in nature and the universe.
