As a catch and release fisher(wo)man, I am interested in creating new ways to preserve memories, the environment, and wild fish populations all at once.

A painting of your prized catch will serve as an alternative to the once popular taxidermy.  It is a unique, contemporary way to evolve with the changing needs of our environment, whilst still holding on to the moments, and victories that move us to keep fishing.

So the next time you’ve got a fish on the end of your line, catch it on film, and let it go, so that it might grow and breed, and give you an even more memorable fight the next time you out wit it...

Then simply email me your photo, and you will have not only a trophy that holds space outside the den, but a meaningful conversation piece to share a fish tale over.

Keep in mind that the better the quality of the photo, the more accurate detail I am able to extract and translate into your one of a kind art piece.  That being said, I do have a very vivid imagination, and am willing to fill in the blanks where necessary.

If it got away, and you don’t have a photo, but know the species that you would like depicted, have a look through the galleries, or drop me a line... I would be happy to accommodate your request... and add a little fuel to the tale you’ve been spinning. 

I also paint pets and places, so if you have a wall that is longing for a unique and personal work of art, or if you have been looking for just the right gift for someone special, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
