About the Artist:
I Love fishing and decided to give Gyotaku fish printing a try back in 2007. I spent hours of research on the internet, bought some paper & ink, and I was on my way. My first fish prints were elementary at best, but I am lucky that the fishing is good in Hawaii so I was printing a new fish every weekend. With this kind of practice, my skills improved.
Every artist has their own style. I focus on reproducing the features and colors of the each individual fish I paint. To attain the details I strive for, I use a variety of mediums including watercolor paints, watercolor pencils and pastels as well as carbon and graphite pencils. This attention to detail and mixing of mediums is what sets my gyotaku apart from other artists.
I hope you enjoy my art as much as I have enjoyed creating it.
What I offer:
Below is one of my best paintings done with water-soluble oil pastels.
It is a spectacled Parrot fish brought to me by a spearfishing client on Oahu Hawaii.
