About the Artist

My name is Sandy Tatro



I first saw a fish print in a bait shop a few years ago. I was intrigued, and i decided to pursue the art of  painting a fish to produce my version of gyotaku.i clean, stuff orifices (to prevent leakage), and daub oil paint onto the fish.  The image is printed directly onto rice paper,  and eyes and detail are hand-painted to complete the picture. There is beauty  and joy in the fishes of the deep blue sea.
