When I walk, I walk down by the water because the water is the edge. It is the end place where you cannot go any further.

It's comforting to know something stronger is pushing back. It is also a connector - a bridge of direct contact to other unseen continents & cultures,

"One hundred miles out to sea
the beauty is phenomenal.
It's magical. It's mysterious."
- Kovel

This place - the deep ocean - is the inspiration for the work of Kovel, who once sold his tuna catches commercially, is today an artist who brings a unique vision to his art, inspired by life in the world's oceans. He is a voice for the fish and marine life, whose habitats are rapidly shifting out of balance. He works in wood, steel, styrofoam, aluminum, plexiglass, wire - a multitude of materials - to create everything from huge fish mounted on the walls a public school and a major marine aquarium, to small whimsical sea creatures + jewelry.
