The Story Behind the Artwork:

The Paper Nautilus painting was inspired by watching a show about the Argonaut during cephalopod week. I was fascinated by the Argonaut's "shell" because the shell is not a shell at all. Instead, the "paper shell" is a calcite egg case made and carried by the female Argonaut in order to protect the eggs within. Female Argonauts do not have a den or cave they live in, so they must carry and protect their eggs within the paper like shell case.
