Design Concept

A visit to the Great Barrier Reef of Australia in October of 1989, and the subsequent purchase of a book of underwater photography, opened my eyes to the marvelous world of color, pattern, and movement that exists beneath the surface of the sea. This is the first in a series of works inspired by these visual images. Although this quilt does not depict any specific species of fish, my design grew out of a series of pencil sketches I made of a sand diver fish (Trichonotus Nikii).
