“My intention was to present a natural world of beauty, complexity and diversity.
“I made a three-layer base, quilted the layers together and bound the edges. I made each of the coral reef elements, most of which represent real creatures.
“The ground is quilted and the elements were constructed using a multitude of fiber-arts techniques.”
