Artist StatementI have painted the Mural as a tribute to Oceanographer and filmmaker Rob Stewart who tragically drowned earlier this year filming the sequel to his award-winning film Sharkwater, off the Florida coast. I included the quote from Rob "Conservation is the preservation of human life on Earth"
and opted to paint a mural that portrays the Shark as a powerful Majestic creatures.
