The Oceana Collection
This collection encompasses the many varied nations and cultures that live within the worlds’ waterways. From Hawaii to Tonga, from the Marquesas to Guinea Pau Pau and Melanesia; these nations live within a tenuous relationship between volcanoes and oceans. These are worlds the agricultural, industrial and technological societies never see. Their perspectives on ocean life systems are things we cannot even imagine. They have built their cultures within nature’s splendors, thriving in spite of the perils brought on by their environment and the encroachments of other nations. My work brings the mysteries and imagery of their lives and their respect for this precious earth to the attention of all land dwellers.
