Gena Bentall's Profile
My love of animals and nature influences all aspects of my life. I create a balance between my artistic side, which was nurtured by a family of artists, and my analytical side, which manifests in my career as a marine biologist in California. My day to day work with the marine life of Monterey Bay, as well as my previous career as a zoo keeper in California and Oregon give me an insider's perspective and a unique eye for the true nature of animals. Through my work, I try to express an an appreciation for the traditionally charming as well as the under-appreciated---even the toad needs a kiss now and then!
