SHARK

Type: Hatchery

I was only 5 years old when my grandma and I stood on the shore of Fort Myers Beach at dusk watching my mom and pop wading waist deep, looking for live sea creatures. I can still feel that childhood fear – of seeing a dark fin break the surface of the water between them and us. I imagined it was a shark preparing to eat my parents alive before my eyes. Only later did I come to learn it was a dolphin instead.

When I create the shark this remembrance is always there, along with respect of sharks themselves – a very valuable part of the Web of Life.

It is natural that my first shark would in form represent the shark species I felt was threatening my folks. I hope to artistically express other members of the shark family as I become more in tune with their anatomy and personality.
