I have spent years studying the Gyotaku art form, trying new techniques,
experimenting with various fish species and papers, and truly enjoying
creating high quality and unique fish prints. Painting the fish
in it’s natural color is a challenging and enjoyable experience;
with each fish I paint and print, my goal is to create a unique
Gyotaku art piece that accurately portray’s the species, bringing
enjoyment to all who see it. Using a variety of beautiful natural
fiber papers adds to the unique quality of each print.
My wife, daughter and I happily live in Redding,
California. In addition to being a Gyotaku artist, I work as an
Environmental Scientist with the State of California, tasked with
maintaining the high quality of waters in the streams and lakes
of Northern California. In 2007, I started ‘One 4 Fish Prints’,
a business dedicated to quality Gyotaku prints, sustainable use
of fisheries resources, conservation of existing fish populations,
and the advancement of the Gyotaku art form.
