Hattie was found on the beach by a young boy and his friend. He took the creature home which is against the law. The turtle wasn't doing well and his friend convinced him to turn the turtle over to a rescue.
Once at the rescue Hattie was well taken care of and grew rapidly until she was finally released in the Florida Keys.
PSA, AFC, MC
I grew up on a small farm in Connecticut. Being an only child allowed me many hours to paint and explore the woods and swamps around our house. I received no formal training till I attended Art College, where I majored in advertising and illustration. In my second year there one of my paintings entitled Toy in the Attic made it into an art exhibit at the Yale University Art Gallery show. Shortly after I graduated with honors. From there, I traveled to sunny South Florida.
My past endeavors have included being a freelance rock photographer, taking pictures of Styx, Robert Plant, Steve Marriott of Humble Pie and many more. I currently work for a newspaper as a special sections designer and still manage to paint every day.
