‘Rockpool Treasures’ has been created from memory, fondly recollecting on my experiences of meandering in rockpools which I do frequently as I live in a coastal town. What a joy it is to discover tiny treasures, exploring all the little details in rockpools through the dappled light bouncing on the water, feeling the poetry of the ebb and flow of the sea and just ‘being’ out in nature. I’ve come to realise this ritual of immersion gives me a sense of calm, feeds my curiosity of observing nature’s minutiae and how important it is for myself and my arts practice.
