In Irish Folklore, there are many stories about creatures who can transform themselves from seals to humans. Once ashore, the “Selkies” were said to dance and sing along the coastline. Selkies represent a wild, untamed beauty. There is a spiritual freedom, mystery and gratification of magically being able to travel between worlds of the sea and land. Parallels can be drawn between the Selkies journey and the Irish peoples strong dependence on and relationship with the unpredictable sea. This work explores the Selkies journey as she travels between land and sea.
