Don’t Be Koi

This commission started with a request to “be inspired” by lobsterclaw flowers sent from Lagos. Exotic and beautiful, twisting on exquisite stems, the forms evolved around a limited palette and limited shapes. The markings worked through the background to tease the viewer to ask, “Is it a plant, is it a fish?”
