THE STORY

 

The majestic tiger shark (Galeocerdo cuvier) – a species that I didn’t gain a full appreciation of until moving to Shark Bay, Western Australia. They’re not only beautiful and graceful, but vitally important in maintaining a healthy balance in our marine environment. I’m always so in awe and grateful of seeing them cruise the bay.

 

It took a while for me to paint this particular species. I’m not an artist with a to-do list of painting every marine creature out there. I have to have a personal connection or story associated with a species to give me the urge and inspiration to paint it. And with the tiger shark, for me, there’s an immense sense of awe, thrill and excitement (or quiet, wide-eyed panic when seeing them while in the water!). There’s also a healthy wave of fear and a strong feeling of respect.

 

So here’s my tribute to the tiger shark (thaaka in Malgana language).
