This ivory box was a great find from an antique store and became the canvas for this piece. A scuba-diver friend of mine was the inspiration for the design. I decided not to focus on any one ocean, rather to take some of my favorite undersea dwellers and put them together. I used shell designs to create the scroll-like boarder. The finished piece is meant to celebrate the planet’s oceans. In 2007, it won the “Best Color Wildlife” at the Mystic International Scrimshaw Competition.  3 ½” x 6”
