In addition to painting in traditional mediums, I also practice Gyotaku. Gyotaku is an ancient artistic method that uses real fish or other sea creatures. I practice the Direct Method by painting directly on the fish, then press handmade paper over them. When the paper is lifted, the impression of the creature on the paper. At this point, final touches are added, such as the eye and traditional signature. (Traditional Gyotaku does not paint the eye to make the original impression.) My traditional signature is my name in Japanese.
