Under the Sea Mixed media My theme Under the Sea was inspired by the beauty of coral found in the ocean. I was inspired by all the different types of coral and algae that live under the sea to create a beautiful coral reef. The reality of our coral reefs being destroyed because of climate change and global warming is heartbreaking to see, as it destroys all of the ocean's life. This harsh reality made me want to bring awareness to this issue, so that people may feel a sense of urgency to reverse the effects of climate change. I decided to make one piece showing the beauty and liveliness of coral, and one piece showing the destruction caused by coral bleaching.
