Main Gallery – Katy Danca Galli
Growing up on the west coast of Florida, Galli was so very grateful to experience the beauty of our blue planet first hand. At age ten, her mother managed to save $150 over the course of 5 months, (a feat that was not easy for them at the time), so she would have the opportunity to visit Seacamp in the Florida Keys. This changed the course of her life forever, and as a result, fell deeply in love with the ocean...and have worked hard ever
since to live and breathe by the tide. She is a photographer, former photo editor for Scuba Diving magazine, master diver, former registered boy scout (seriously), ocean advocate, and lover of all bodies of water. Her work has been featured as the first female Lee County Resident Artist, with Captains for Clean Water, Bare Sports, Scuba Diving magazine, Sport Diver Magazine,, and she has won contests with the Ocean
Conservancy, NOAA, World Wildlife Federation, Our World Underwater, and placed first in wide angle with the Florida Skin Divers Association. Currently I am working on a 'camp and dive' series, dedicated to Florida's waterways.
Artist Statement:
'Looking up from the ocean floor, the immense number of possibilities that exist in this silent realm hit me all at once. The ocean is a master of none; it can caress you, and then completely destroy you-in the span of a few seconds. I love the extreme yin and yang that exists, and want others to see this in my work, and know this feeling of being both completely out of your element, and then consumed by the greatest love story you'll ever know. This is where I go to seek God, and to share this beguiling and magnificent atmosphere.'

Galli offers custom print sizes; everything from turtles to underwater sunsets
