Thank You
Dr. Don Thomson (DAT), who allowed me to photograph specimens at the University of Arizona’s Fish & Invertebrate Collections, borrow articles and dissertations, and consulted me on scientific accuracy. Also to Katherine Larson, Kate Long Hodges, Barbara Tetenbaum, Jeff Thom & Peggy Turk Boyer for helping with edits and problem solving, and to my family.

This project was made possible in part from the Oregon College of Art & Craft Jr. Artist Residency, the Community Foundation of Southern Arizona | Buffalo Exchange Arts Award and the Arizona Commission on the Arts Artist Project Grant.
