As a marine biologist who focuses on sharks, I've become acutely aware of how a lot of art depicts sharks and their relatives (the skates, rays, and chimaeras) as animals we should fear. Many people don't stop to look at their sheer beauty. This shop aims to do that. What started out as stress relief has become a bit of a hobby of mine- studying pictures of the unique patterns of these animals and bringing it to life via digital watercolor art. I've kept it minimalistic and simple, my kind of style. Each item comes with a description of the animal, and more of these animals can be learned on The Fins United Initiative's "Bite Blog" by searching the animal by name. I hope this shop lets people see these animals for what they truly are: beautiful.

    My personal motto: Simplicity with a hint of Beyoncé and a whole lotta Bill Nye. You will often find me snuggled under a fluffy blanket drinking tea, devouring popcorn or mac'n'cheese, and snuggling next to my husband. We like to travel the world!
