Janet, Who Fell From The Sea

Made in charcoal, and coloured digitally, it tells the story of a girl who falls into an underwater town, haunted by the ghosts of unfinished stories. It explores the liminal spaces between adulthood and childhood, as she falls from one story to the next, following the sound of an ethereal bell.
