The Japanese (scientific recording), art of Gyotaku, was once a practical way to record marine species. Gyotaku means Fish – Rubbing. Depending on the size of the fish, the inks and canvases used, it is an intricate process and somewhat particular art form.
Living by the coast I have recorded species from Salmon, Bream, Herring and Dhufush. I am an animal lover and believe in sustainability and ethical practices, ensuring that each fish I catch and paint is also eaten. Visit my shop page to see available Gyotaku pieces or follow me on instagram.
