"One of my dearest and most personal friends began as my personal assistant. What began for her as a job assisting me in my day-to-day tasks, blossomed over many years, into one of my most personal and deepest friendships. Later, she decided to move forward with her studies and is currently working on her doctoral degree in Marine Biology. This sculpture was inspired by the underwater experiences she has shared with me. It's truly amazing the vibrant colors and unique species that are in our oceans."
