About the artist:

Wharfinger Building Location

“For the Warfinger Marina, a sitting bench was created to give rest to people going by.  The bench depicts our wonderful fish and marina life here in Humboldt County, and to appreciate that God has provided the delightful taste of crabs, oysters and salmon.  For the mammal species, I have chosen a mother seal and her young one to remind us of their love for one another.

Del Norte St. Pier Location

“It was an honor to create the benches for the two locations by the Del Norte Playground and the Warfinger Marina.

I created a life-size dolphin and shark for the purpose of letting the children of all ages enjoy and appreciate those two wonderful local ocean creatures.”
