Acrylics are painted onto the surface of a fish.  A handmade paper is pressed onto the fish. When removed, a lifelike image is revealed.  Aquatic plants are added to certain works.

My art is “Gyotaku”- the ancient art of fish imprinting. Originally, the art was used in Japan as a means of recording the size of their catch.
