"Flotsam, Jetsam, Lagan & Derelict" is the name of an exhibit that opened at Madrona Gallery in 2012. The title appealed to me because it gave me a sense of adventure, journey, and loss - and I liked that the words together read as a sort of poem. I used this concept when naming many of the works, such as "Cross-stitch, Jellyfish, First-Mate"s Mistress."

Here is a definition from Wikipedia:

Inmaritime law,flotsam,jetsam,laganandderelictdescribe specific kinds ofwreck. The words have specific nautical meanings, with legal consequences in thelawofadmiraltyandmarine salvage.
