Inspiration

I love shells… My favourite beach has sand made from tiny stones & thousands of small shells, all different shapes & types. beautifully delicate & lovely colours. It’s awe inspiring & makes you wonder about the shell life that once inhabited them.

When I was young I’d spend hours sifting through collecting favourite shapes & colours.

This image has my love of those in it, but is also inspired by one of my favourite paintings, Botticelli’s Birth Of Venus which hangs in the Uffizi in Florence - I spent an entire, undisturbed day staring at it on a visit in my early 20s.

Scallop shell is a universally ancient symbol of love. Botticelli’s execution of the scallop in his painting is exquisite & he has Venus, the Goddess of Love, landing ashore on it.

So with all that love going on it made sense to turn the shell into a heart shape!
