Description Sea Turtles, live on average 80 years. Spend most of their time submerged under water, surfacing momentarily to breath air. cotT: Batik on paper.Their shells carapace are streamlined for swimming through water. Sea turtles cannot retract their head and legs into their shell. Color varies between yellow, olive, green and black depending on the species. They eat jellyfish, seaweed, crabs, shrimp, sponges, snails, algae and mollusks. Sea turtles are found in warm temperate waters throughout the world and migrate hundreds of miles between feeding and nesting grounds. The female will usually return to the place where she hatched to nest at night. This is probably the only time she may return to dry land. Gestation period is 6-10weeks, and 70 - 190 eggs are laid depending on the species. Sea Turtles breed every 2-4 years when they have reached maturity. Original: Batik on paper.
Katie Art, NC Member Since December 2008 Artist Statement Welcome to my gallery on Imagekind.com.
Everyone is entitled to view art the way they desire to. I believe that God is the original creator of all things, therefore, what I make by my hand, that which is considered an original, is merely a "copy of the truth". Hebrews 9:23. [cotT] this is how I identify my "original" art work. God also blesses us with our talents, so it is to Him I give thanks. I was born on July 26, 1961, in the capital city of Salisbury, Rhodesia, now called Harare, Zimbabwe. Growing up in Africa I learned to love and respect the beauty of nature and animals. At age six I went to live in Greece with my grandmother for almost a year, and ever since then I consider it my second home. In 1983 I moved to the United States, and over the course of years have lived in California, Virginia and presently in Raleigh, North Carolina. Where ever I am on this life's journey, I know that this is where God wants me to be.
Part of who I am, and where I’ve been is the source of my inspiration. I’ve always loved to draw since I can remember. At school art was my favorite subject. Throughout high school and college I studied various media and techniques including watercolor and batik making. As a result I’ve combined these two techniques; what I call "batik on paper".
Information about the art of batik making is available on "My Gallery" page. >>
I hope you enjoy my work and thank you for visiting.
In addition, my batik art images are available on a selection of quality merchandise such as T-shirts, greeting cards, calendars, journals, mugs, pillows and more! Come visit my store on CafePress!
