Each reef mosaic piece of art is a reflection and celebration of the rich web of life on a coral reef. Every species of fish, coral, shell or starfish has a story .... and they all interconnect and depend on each other - they form the society on a coral reef. Sometimes the people who were there to see it are part of that story.
Wall art can be printed onto large format 6mm acrylic, glass or high quality art paper and framed up to a maximum of 2m x 4m.
Related to squids and octopus, this living fossil is found on the deep outer coral slopes of the Ribbon Reefs north of Port Douglas
A subtle and unobtrusive little starfish with a richly textured surface, is found in the shallow back reef lagoon where it feeds on microscopic algae, and detritus on the reef floor. This one was photographed at Watson's Bay, Lizard Island, 2014.
Like Japanese lanterns.... the tentacles of this anemone (Entacmaea quadricolour) sting tiny floating plankton and even small fish. A family of anemone fish live within the tentacles... they have developed a mucous coat that is identical to the mucous on the anemone tentacles and so are not stung, having a safe haven for themselves and sometimes bringing food to their anemone host.

Black & White
We've always been drawn to the fringing lip of sea kissing the shores of our coastlines. Vast oceans meet the land, as surging coils of powerful waves, or on windless days as lake-like calm. The warm shallow waters of the tropics nurture oases of rich coral growth. Here nature celebrates evolution's greatest masterpiece - the coral reef. A rich mosaic of interconnected life - brilliantly coloured fish, corals and shells washed in clear turquoise ocean.... a realm where human visitors, like Alice, can slide through the looking-glass to momentarily become part of the underwater realm - to become part of the Reef Society.
...a society oblivious to our observation as the daily grind of survival unfolds before our very eyes.
Temple of Doom
A remarkable site on the northern Great Barrier Reef, right on the outer edge of the Ribbon Reefs. Massive schools of fish cluster like giant daubs of paint on an underwater landscape.....
Peering through anemone tentacles, Amphiprion percula is immune to the stings of its host anemone......
