Blue Ammonite – Pink Ammonite


A trip to Lyme Regis on the Jurassic Coast of England, augmented by a visit to Morocco, began my fascination with fossilized ammonites. Spiral shapes have always intrigued me, especially spirals in natural forms that follow the Fibonacci Sequence (1,1,2,3,5,8,13....). Even though each ammonite is unique and beautiful in its own way, the spiral pattern is always based on this law of nature. The same, yet different. This is a recurring theme in many of my artworks.
