"I selected a shell motif for this series to commemorate the challenges faced by those who are marginalized in our society. However, as I thought about this theme, I realized it may also speak to a shared struggle of human kind, no matter how you identify. 

These shells represent stories from our past. They tell us that a living thing once found refuge here - it also suggests a movement forward, a transition, a symbol of growth - emerging from this hard shell, now vulnerable once again as we are reborn into a new set of challenges and opportunities.

These stories are told by the secrets held within the Language of Shells."
