Findings 

Colors that are so vibrant and synthetic-looking—the realization that these colors can and do exist in our natural world made JMF's palette grow. She brings these vivid colors to her work. 

 

Whale shark, Maldives.

Over whelming encounters

A dive with a whale shark in the Maldives revealed how fascinating the marine world can be, especially when one gets to swim with one of nature's majestic creatures.   

"I found a piece of plastic while chasing after the sea's most graceful fish. I thought, I need to paint this." -JMF

EVOLution

Of Characters 

In the summer of 2013 JMF brought her marine doodles, in her sketchbook to her oil paintings. The first stage of experimentation was inspired by  her dive with the whale shark & plastic. This is what she decided to do with what she found; transform her work to a whole new platform of visual dimension through oil painting. Her sole purpose was to create a visually transient  language,  through imagery that was brought about by her underwater experiences .  "Who knew that my random fish inspired doodles I made when we came up to the surface, would amount to this. "-JMF
