CHARLESTON SC / 2007
A Project to Benefit Turtle Conservation Programs
at The South Carolina Aquarium
Over thirty artist’s designs were chosen
for outdoor display in the Charleston area.
Both of my concepts were sponsored.
These are my turtles …
from the arrival of the molded plastic forms,
to the installation.

MI TORTUGA / SU TORTUGA
Sponsor / The French Quarter Gallery Association
Location / East Bay and Broad Streets
I painted her body in swirling sun/sunset
colors and pearlescent dots, with a mosaic
of inlaid “pearl” beads and bits of white tile on her shell. I adorned her neck and flipper with cascades
of necklaces and bracelets, since she graced our French Quarter, made from the same beads I’d used on her shell.
