"In my childhood, I enjoyed feeding manatees, sitting on huge land turtles, handling reptiles, snorkeling, roaming the Everglades, visiting Seminole villages, and collecting specimens on the bay flats and mangrove swamps. I was surrounded by various collections of fish, birds, reptiles, skulls, feathers, shells, orchids and Indian artifacts. These early experiences have shaped my art."
