The Power of Personalization: Orcas for Arval




 
For 7 years, Rob worked side-by-side with Sandra in the front lab at Dallas Nephrology Associates. Sandra was his direct supervisor, a mentor, a surrogate mom, and a good friend. During those years, she was a daily source of wisdom, encouragement and humor for him.

Recently, Sandra contacted us and asked for us to create an Orca Whale for her brother, Arval.  He always love Killer Whales and their symbology of family, longevity, harmony, community and protection.

We created a large wall-mounted piece for Arval's wife and family....and a smaller whale memorial for Sandra to keep.  We feel honored to make these pieces for him and their family.

Recently we drove up to Dallas to deliver them to her in person. It has been over 10 years since we moved from Dallas and Rob left his job at DNA.  It was so awesome to see Sandra and her family, have some laughs and catch up on life.
