These sculptures of mutilated, finless sharks are part of my BFA thesis. I became fascinated with these animals when I learned, horrified, that they are being killed for their fins, which, in turn, were cooked up in soups. Even more horrifying, however, was finding out that so few people were aware of or even cared about this problem. Indignant, I decided to combine my passion for these animals with my art.
