“The sea is everything. It covers seven tenths of the terrestrial globe. Its breath is pure and healthy. It is an immense desert, where man is never lonely, for he feels life stirring on all sides. The sea is only the embodiment of a supernatural and wonderful existence. It is nothing but love and emotion; it is the Living Infinite. ”
― Jules Verne, Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea
10,000 Leagues is a collection of whimsy and joy, inspired by the wonders of the sea and the classic works of Jules Verne. Verne described the ocean as “a perfect kaleidoscope of green, yellow, orange, violet, indigo, and blue… the whole palette of an enthusiastic colourist!” It is the swirling myriad of colour and life embodied within the deep waters and shallow pools of the ocean that I have tried to capture in this collection.
