About the work

The saying 'No grit, no pearl' has carried me through school, exams, my first job and subsequent jobs, buying my first home, setting up a business... No matter what the hurdle in life, hard work (grit) usually pays off (pearl). The process isn't always beautiful but you can be sure the results will be. When creating this art print, I focused on the formation of pearls in the literal sense - where a piece of grit gets stuck in the oyster or clam's shell and so a protective process begins which results in the formation of a pearl. My art print features a dreamy underwater scene of sand, shells, sea plants and of course pearls.
