About the 200 Sharks project
Every 60 seconds around 200 sharks are lost from the ocean due to human activities. The mission for my 200 Sharks Project is to dive with, photograph and paint 200 different species of sharks. And then, through the power of art and storytelling, to bring you face-to-face with the ocean’s most iconic and misunderstood fish, the shark. Through my artwork I aim to provide a spotlight for these living dinosaurs, showcasing their intelligence, habits, adaptations, diversity, beauty, and personalities. With this project I am creating a body of work that takes my own personal diving encounters and uses this as a basis to fuel artwork that breaks down the negative stigma on sharks – turning fear into love. I believe education and connection is the key to unlocking the empathy door within our minds. Art holds the power to create feeling, passion and ultimately change. Our world is a better place with sharks in it, and as an artist I feel it is my duty to be a voice for these silent creatures.
Divine Feminine – Story behind the artwork
Divine Feminine was inspired by my time spent diving in the Cocos Island in Costa Rica where I was surrounded by a school of female scalloped hammerheads.
At first the visibility was poor but as we slowly drifted around the craggy walls to shelter from the surge, the water started to clear and we settled down. I wedged my fins into some rocks to keep myself stable and the wait for hammerheads began. Scalloped Hammerheads are a very shy species, easily spooked compared to other sharks. I calmed my breathing and bubbles to hopefully attracted the sharks to come closer. Five or so minutes passed and out of the murky cobalt waters the mysterious and elegant hammerheads appeared, swimming in a distinct formation - a scene I had only experienced in documentaries and photos. I hovered speechless, eyes wide open in awe at the magical event happening in front of me, a school of 50 Hammerheads, all covered in mating scars, and all ready for a well deserved clean. Before I could blink, 3 cruised over my head and suddenly I was surrounded.
I have illustrated a scene of pure magic and female energy, which asks the viewer to imagine being one of the sharks in this Hammerhead orchestra. I have named this painting ‘Divine Feminine’ to celebrate female sharks in all their size and wonder. They have evolved to be bigger and better than the male sharks. And their ability to school on mass for pleasure and not for safety to me shows an intelligence we have only just begun to explore.
