The Gyotaku Project gives a glimpse into some of processes and images created to complete a body of work using this unique Japanese technique of fish printing.
The fine art pieces were created predominantly with fish from the waters of Newfoundland and Labrador using traditional techniques of gyotaku and the artist's own style of enhancing them.

For thirty years, she has explored the world of people and animals through portraiture in a variety of mediums, with her work evolving over time into a current mix of representational and impressionist techniques.
