About Li Newton

I am an American artist and photographer who resides in San Salvador, Bahamas. I am proficient in a variety of mediums including silk painting, oil painting, acrylics, pastels, mixed media/ collage, mosaics, watercolor, decorative restoration, photography and more. I studied briefly at the Pa. Academy of the Fine Arts in Philadelphia and at Otis-Parsons School of Design in Los Angeles but most of my growth and experimentation has come through the trials and triumphs of life.

Colors of the Caribbean, movement of the life above and under the water, and the people I meet all inspire my work and my life. I constantly experiment in different mediums and textures and aspire to never stop learning. Thank you for visiting my site.

Underwater Photography- Stingrays

All photos taken with my old beater Olympus C-765 with underwater housing. Stingrays are commonly found in the shallow coastal waters of temperate seas. The stingray's tail features a poisonous barb, which is used only in self-defense. Stingrays are generally docile and will swim close to divers and snorkelers without fear. They spend the majority of their time inactive, partially buried in sand, often moving only with the sway of the tide. Their flattened bodies are composed of pectoral fins joined to their head and trunk with an infamous tail trailing behind. While the stingray's eyes peer out from its dorsal side, its mouth, nostrils, and gill slits are situated on its underbelly. Its eyes are therefore not thought by scientists to play a considerable role in hunting. Like its shark relatives, the stingray is outfitted with electrical sensors called ampullae of Lorenzini. Located around the stingray's mouth, these organs sense the natural electrical charges of potential prey. Many rays have jaw teeth to enable them to crush mollusks such as clams, oysters, and mussels.
