What a great portfolio! I'm fascinated by your artwork..
I grew up on the coast, literally; my back yard was Galveston Bay, and my grandfather had shrimp-boats. You'd think with all that exposure to the water... well nevertheless I still get creeped out, (sometimes) when I'm in deep water and can't see the bottom, especially if no one else is around. Primordial fears ? I guess the abyss has many faces - at least one for every human on the planet.
