Lime’s Flight | Original
Last summer, I had the incredible opportunity to visit the Lime Kiln Lighthouse, located on the western side of San Juan Island in Washington. The lighthouse is now being used for a whale research centre, as it overlooks the water that orcas and other whales frequently pass through. I got to see my first real orca here, and it was a life changing experience. I am so passionate about ocean protection, and caring for all of the incredible sea creatures within our world. In this piece, I tried to explore the mystifying and unique qualities of the orcas.

Juliet Schreckinger is a Long Island, New York based artist. Her work is typically created using a stippling technique in pen & ink and graphite, with occasional splashes of colour.
Juliet’s pieces are inspired by the ocean, nature, and all of the creatures within our world.
Since the time she was a child, Juliet has been fascinated by black and white photography, colourless television shows, and film noir movies. Being exposed to the lighting effects and sharp contrasts shown in these photographs and films greatly inspired the type of work that she does today.
Juliet’s work is centred around giving a voice to nature and animals, with the goal of showcasing their importance in this world. Through an illustrative take on fine art, she attempts to express a story in each drawing.
